The International Council of Spiritualists (ICS)
The International Council of Spiritualists (ICS) are an Australian and International association with a large membership of SPIRITUALIST Churches, Centres, Groups, along with a number of individual Support Members; we have joined together to foster and promote SPIRITUALISM as a religion and philosophy open to everyone who is seeking the True way of life, its truths that remove the fear of death.
Every Member, a member being a church, centre or group along with every financial member of each venue, has equal standing on the council; they are represented by three representative members from each of the member churches, centres or groups; any of the three or all are allowed to attend the meetings of the Council. It is these representatives that make up the “committee” or “Council” of the ICS Inc., each one having equal voice in the administration and running of the ICS Inc. Each member church, centre or group has one vote over all at the meetings or by proxy vote; again irregardless of the size of the church, centre or group.
The ICS Inc., has its OBJECTIVES, AIMS and PURPOSES incorporated in its constitution, which states that above all we wish to pursue the advancement and unification of MODERN SPIRITUALISM as a religion as well as a philosophy and science, so bringing it in to it’s rightful place alongside all other beliefs and religions. Our goal has been furthered by our proclamation of recognition as a religious denomination by the Commonwealth Government, this came into effect on the 3rd of October 1995.This recognition gave SPIRITUALISTS the freedom of choice, concerning religious services for marriages, namings and funerals; with ordained Spiritualist Ministers able to perform these services for them.
