“The radiance that is neither East nor West comes from a single moon.” Rumi
We believe that interfaith can go beyond respectful dialogue – as vital as that is. These services offer an inclusive spiritual experience that draws on the finest teachings from East and West and emphasizes their relevance to mindful, joyful contemporary living.
Reverend Stephanie Dowrick, PhD is an ordained Interfaith Minister who sees her ministry as reaching out to all, regardless of their faith background, through teachings, scriptures and inspirations that speak directly to our minds and hearts, honouring the sacred and creating positive, practical changes in our lives. Interfaith services offer teachings, prayers, readings and music from a wide variety of traditions, emphasising a direct experience of the sacred, celebrating difference and diversity, while also reflecting the unity of the human desire to grow in understanding of what life most truly is and can become.
Interfaith in Sydney enjoys a most wonderful home through the generosity of the Pitt Street Uniting Church community and its minister, Reverend Ian Pearson. Pitt Street is itself an inclusive parish, bringing the message of love and practical concern through a variety of services and initiatives.

“The only way to find God is to see him in his creation and be one with it. This can only be done by service to all.” – Mahatma Gandhi
