Curious about The Church of Eternal Light?.

It began as a schoolhouse which was built in 1884 by Miss Hattie O. Utter, a day school teacher in the North Chippens Hill district of Bristol. A year later she left the area to return to her hometown to marry and the church and Sunday school was continued by the Sessions family of Bristol.

In 1889, the schoolhouse officially was named Mount Hope Chapel.

By 1907, the church became more than a Sunday school and had evolved into a non-denominational parish that had frequent sermons by ministers of different religions.

In 1962, it changed hands once again and became the First Michel Spiritualist Church. Twenty years later, the church again changed hands, and was renamed The Church of Eternal Light.

In the year 2000 a new steeple and bell tower were erected, and a year later the property officially became a Pagan Spiritualist church.

To this day, The Church of Eternal Light serves the citizens of Bristol, as well as any who wish to attend — some even coming from out of state — with a multi-denominational means of worship.

The pagan Church is rumored to be haunted by a ghostly face that appears in the bell tower windows. Witnesses also have reported spirit orbs here. One legend says a parishioner was once struck by lightning on the church front steps, and it is he who haunts the place.

The Church of Eternal Light is located at 1199 Hill St, Bristol.

Services are also held every Sunday at 2 p.m.

  MIAMI GARDENS, Fla.  — Tom Brady was intercepted twice by Xavien Howard and held without a third-down conversion Monday night, and the Miami Dolphins snapped the New England Patriots’ eight-game winning streak with a surprising 27-20 victory.

Brady went 24 for 43 for 233 yards and one touchdown. Miami sacked him twice and hit […]

The company is calling the free downloads Appsperiments, a clunky portmanteau of “apps” and “experiments.” The […]

Tax overhaul could mean major changes to your paycheck

If Republicans succeed in passing a tax overhaul by Christmas, the law could mean major changes for your take-home pay — not all of them welcome. But those changes probably won’t be reflected in your paycheck in time for the New Year. The American Payroll Association, whose members represent 17,000 employers, warned lawmakers Monday that they were creating a “herculean task” for companies and payroll service providers by leaving them such a short time to start implementing the new provisions, […]
