Shisler Mennonite Church (Sherkston Shores, Ontario, Canada) Investigation.
Duration: 4-5 hours
Start Time: 8pm
Important: RSVP's are limited to 12 and this event will be posted to all 3 groups. As soon as we have 12 combined RSVP's, we will close the event.
We were the first group to investigate this location and I don't think anyone has since.
The first Mennonite church was erected in 1822. The church located now in Sherkston was erected in 1880.
This will be a perfect location for anyone new to investigations.
We will rotate 3 groups of 4.
We could choose to do 2 groups of 6, it is flexible so we will adjust depending on the attending investigators.
1. Investigate the Church
2. Investigate the grounds.
3. Watch the IR feed of the interior during the investigation
4. Ouija (if you want to, nobody is forced to use it)
5. Ghost Box
6. Investigative Tarot
7. Automatic Writing
8. Scole EVP Experiment
9. ITC for EVP
There may be more that we add…
Rotations (15-20 mins)
Group 1. Investigates the church
Group 2. Investigates the exterior (EVP/Photo)
Group 3. Observe the church investigation (IR Cameras)
Below is an image from out previous investigations. It looks like there is someone sat the the pew though there was nobody else in the church at the time this photo was taken.
The Sherkston staff do not like to be in the church due to the many stories passed down. Some refuse to enter all together. In the last investigation we did, I even witnessed something first hand. I was cleaning out the main area when I saw one of the fellow investigators go upstairs. I watched the shadow wind up the stairs then ran to turn the lights off, I know, very childish… it's like you have never met me :) anyway, there was no scream or anything. Saddened I picked up the items I was taking back to the car, and she was out side, she had never been in the church at the time.
No equipment? don't worry, we have plenty for you to use.
Our new Thermal Imaging Camera
Germanium Receptor as used in the Scole Experiment
I.T.C. Audio/Evp Looping
We have the P-SB7 Spirit Box (Ghost Box). We will also have the IR Live EVP recorder, our K2 meters, digital thermometers, laser grid, digital recorders, IR EVP, EVP Array and we are hoping to have the new ITC audio loop/recorder EVP system in time for this investigation. We have plans to purchase much more in the coming months, stay tuned for more details.
P.I.S.T. has beginner kits which we will be taking. These include Digital Thermometers, Recorders, EMF Detectors, Compass, Flash Lights. These will be available for use during the investigation with instruction on how to use them.
History of the Church
The Shisler Mennonite Church, located in Humberstone Township, Welland County, Ontario, was one of two points where the Mennonite Brethren in Christ worshiped in 1880-1900. The church was located a few miles west of the Sherkston Mennonite (MC) Church in Bertie Township and close to Lake Erie at Shisler's Point (now Sherkston Shores). The membership was small. Ministers from the Twenty, 40 miles (65 miles) north, usually supplied. Organized work was discontinued about 1900 and the church was disposed of to the Brethren in Christ (Tunkers). After the Brethren bought the Sherkston (MC) church in 1931 they sold the Shisler church.
With the church being on the small size (80 capacity) we are limiting the number of investigators to 8 with 2 reserve spaces. As with most churches it is one main hall with a balcony. This church also has 3 very small rooms we can use off the hall. We will use the rooms to place a combination of Tarot, Automatic Writing, EVP, Pendulum Witchboard and Ouija. There will be a seance in the main hall with the monitors up on the balcony. We will pair up investigators and rotate through the various areas. This is really the only way to handle a smaller location. There will be time before and after for open investigations in and outside the church.
