We are now a Metaphysical Denomination here in Ontario


Hello Ministers of the Bancroft Centre for Awakening Spiritual Growth

It is now official, our new denomination has been passed by the Government of Ontario, and we are now considered Metaphysical and will no longer operate under Spiritualism. The date we started to make a change was back in 2009, since then I have been working hard at making this change take place.  If you have any questions please feel free to email me.   If there are any Minister’s that have weddings in the future,  you will have to start writing Bancroft Centre for Awakening Spiritual Growth for ‘Denomination’ when you sign the Wedding Certificate.

Thank you for all the support that I have received since 2009.  It has been an uphill climb but we did it.  I look forward to meeting more Metaphysical Ministers that will be joining our family.

Here is some of the Responses from our Ministers


And she made it Love and Light!  You make some awe-fully special ripples Lady!  It is with great gratitude for all that you have done, that I will now indicate Metaphysical in the denomination box!!
