Right_Rev_Ian73 Posted May 30, 2010 Report Share Posted May 30, 2010 Does anyone know how we can set up a petition to get the Unliversal Life Church recognised/Established in the United Kingdom? I've searched on the UK Parliments hansard website and I've found this, and this is the ONLY mention of the ULC anywhere within the Hansard website. The Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (the Act) provides for places of meeting for religious worship, excluding those belonging to the Established Church, to be certified to the Registrar General. A number of tests are applied by the Registrar General when a place of meeting for religious worship is certified to him. This includes the application of the judgment by the Court of Appeal in the Segerdal case in 1970. The main finding in the judgment is that the words 'place of meeting for religious worship' in the Act connote a place of which the principal use is for people to come together as a congregation to worship God or do reverence to a deity. A further test is whether the principal use of the building is for worship or for other matters, such as a private home or social club.Once the Registrar General is satisfied that the place of worship certified to him is capable of recognition, he adds it to the register of such places which, under the Act, he has a duty to maintain.The duty placed on the Registrar General does not extend to maintaining and retaining records of places or organisations that are not capable of recognition as places of worship under the Act, and the records held in this respect by the Registrar General are incomplete. However, the records that the Registrar General does hold confirm that since 1979, the following organisations have made unsuccessful applications for buildings certified as places of worship to be added to the register:Universal Life ChurchMiracle Revival AssemblyCalvary Full Gospel ChurchChristians not otherwise designatedRoman CatholicsThe Methodist ChurchWho object to be designated by any distinctive Religious AppellationOrder of Christ SpiritChristian SpiritualistJehovah's WitnessesCentre for ChristPentecostal Assemblies of GodBaptistsMount Zion Holiness AssemblyChurch of ChristChristian Fellowship in HuddersfieldInterdenominationChristians Nazarenes Methodist and PentecostalFirst Church of Christ, ScientistWentworth Road Christian FellowshipAssemblies of GodLlanelli BaptistGreat Conrad Free ChurchCalvary Church of GodChurch of GodGood News Church MacclesfieldThe Spiritualist SanctuaryGerman Speaking Evangelical Lutheran CongregationThe Order of Women FreemasonsMuslimsGur SangatOrthodox ChristiansCramlington Spiritualist ChurchFrankley Methodist /Anglican ChurchFellowship of Churches of ChristGod's Church of PeacePenzance Christian FellowshipNailsea Christian FellowshipPentwyn Christian FellowshipOfficers and Members of Emmanuel Pentecostal Faith Church of GodChurch of Christ of BethlehemWeybridge United Reformed ChurchHorringer Court Christian FellowshipChristchurch AbbeydaleBrotherhood MovementCaribbean House ChaplaincyGreater World Christian Spiritualist AssociationThe Independent African Caribbean Church of Christ of NazarethThe Pentecostal Evangelistic AssemblyLetchworth Lodge of the Theosophical Society in EnglandThe Holiness Church of God Inc.The Othona CommunityTrinity Church of ChristThe New Benedictine OrderThe Spiritualists National Union RedwoodsRedditch Christian FellowshipThe British Sailor's SocietyEmmanuel Christian FellowshipHighfield Free ChurchGood News ChurchHammarens Ordens Sallskap-The Order of the HammerApostolic Church of God Seventh DayMechanicsKorean Presbyterian ChurchCoptic Orthodox ChurchUnited Reformed ChurchThe Ashford Christian Spiritualist ChurchAmazing Grace and FriendsTavistock Community ChurchApostolicsTrinity Church of ChristChurch of England and United Reformed ChurchConfucians (Buddhists, Goddess of Mercy)Apostolic Church International (in UK)Members of the Correllian Nativist Church InternationalBuddhists (New Kadampa Tradition)CantheistFreedom Family ChurchRedeemed Christian Church of GodC.J's CitySt. Andrews Church of GodWiccanLife Sanctuary ChurchKriya Yoga AshramJesus Christ The Great Salvation FellowshipMount Sion Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
