A family with the surname of Lodder founded the Spiritualist Church of Springs on the 12th of September 1971. Many Spiritualists throughout Southern Africa at some stage or another have heard about us. The family became interested when
Mr. and Mrs. Lodder (senior) started attending the Benoni Christian Spiritualist Church. Later on their son Theo, together with Mrs. Cathy Lee, Mr. Brian Coless and others founded the East Rand Spiritualist Guild, a sub committee of the Benoni Church.
Often through the years the family have been asked by whose authority they started the Spiritualist Church of Springs.
Through direct Spirit guidance they started holding services once a month in the supper room of the old Springs Town Hall. Hundreds of people started attending the services, which were chaired by Theo Lodder, and Mrs. Kit Fraser, from Benoni, played the organ.
In 1972 it was decided to obtain our own church building.
