Our Services and Ministries

We, at the First Spiritual Temple, endeavor to offer people a wide variety of religious, educational, and spiritual experiences. The First Spiritual Temple and its Ayer Institute provide two doorways through which one can experience our work: religion and education. Although both doorways are important and, together, create a wonderful wholeness of experience, we recognize that, initially, some people come to us looking for a Church and place of worship; while others come to us looking for instruction on the various aspects of the spirit. We reach out to both dimensions of the search and give each food for the spirit.

Here is what we offer people, near and far:

  • Sunday Worship: Every Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. (with the exception of the month of August, when Sunday Services are not held.)
  • Religious Education: Dealing with God, Jesus Christ, Spiritualism, and your spirit. How we relate to God, to Christ, and to each other. Making sense of the Bible, in modern times.
  • Spiritual Counseling and Healing: Private counseling and healing sessions on spiritual and religious matters; along with guidance on psychic or mediumistic experiences.
  • Healing Ministry: Our Church's Healing Vigil reaches out to those who are in need of physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Each Sunday service closes with healing prayer and an invitation for members of the congregation to come forward for the laying on of hands. The Healing Vigil extends beyond the congregation, through an inspiring program of absent healing.
  • Monthly Evenings of Spirit Communication: Over the years, these monthly events have become well-known throughout the Greater Boston area. They are held on the third Wednesday evening of each month (September through June), beginning at 7:30 p.m. Our mediums are professional and well-trained in giving evidence of survival and comforting messages from spirit loved ones. These evenings are, truly, a wonderful experience to behold.
  • Private Mediumistic Consultations: For those interested in a private sitting for spirit communication, we offer both in-house and taped sessions with Reverend Simeon Stefanidakis. Rev. Simeon has been a practicing medium and channel for spirit for over 25 years. He is well-known for his integrity, honesty, professionalism, and evidential work with spirit.
  • General Instruction: The Church's Ayer Institute offers a wide variety of practical and down-to-earth classes, lectures, and seminars on the following areas of interest:

Spirit Communication; Healing; Esoteric Studies; Psychic Development; Spiritualism; Life After Death; Reincarnation; Journey of Your Soul; Meditation; The Aura and Chakras; Color Healing; and so much more.

  • Written Ministry: We offer study guides and taped packages on Death and Dying; The Question of Abortion; Mediumship and Channeling; Spiritualism; and more.

We also offer a unique and thoroughly informative teaching guide on The Journey of the Soul. Nearly 500 pages, arranged in 51 lessons, on CD-ROM.
