About Us

Calgary First is a community for ethical mediumship, spiritual growth, spiritual healing and ethical mediumship.

Spiritualism is a science, a philosophy and a religion. Our Church is a place of acceptance, healing, learning, service and worship. We follow a set of Seven Principles. Everyone is welcome. The Church is operated almost entirely by volunteers, including volunteer ministers, mediums and board members.

The Seven Principles of Spiritualism

Spiritualism is the belief that all life is created from, and connected to, one Divine Source. Some may know this Divine Source simply as Spirit, the Creator Energy or God.

As Spiritualists, we believe that upon physical death our souls continue to live and evolve in the Spirit world. We believe that we can communicate and commune with our loved ones in the afterlife through the link of Love for the purposes of healing and personal development.

Spirit communication is not unique to Spiritualism. It has existed since human beings first walked on Earth and will continue to exist long after our own physical lives have ended—such is our innate desire to continuously strive for a deeper and more personal relationship to the Divine.

CFSC was founded in 1920 following several years of regularly scheduled meetings that began during World War I. Church pioneers bought a building on 7th Avenue SE, in the heart of Calgary’s downtown near present-day City Hall, for this first Church. By 1929, the mortgage on the original Church building had been paid, and CFSC operated at this location for over 50 years!  Visit Our History to learn more!
