The Hull Spiritualist Centre SNU is the successor to the ‘Psychic Centre’ which was once based in Pearson Park, Hull.  We are an autonomous centre but are affiliated to the Spiritualists National Union which gives us access to other national resources and is the largest recognised body for Spiritualism in the UK.

We have our own Committee - see below - who are responsible for the management and upkeep of the centre, within the Rules of the SNU.  The Rules for Churches are approved by  the Charity Commission.
