About Eremos

Welcome to Eremos - an inclusive association with its roots in Christianity, offering a forum and support for individuals and communities to explore, express and deepen their spirituality within an Australian context.

Founded over thirty years ago, Eremos is an Australian not-for-profit network of approximately 600 paid members and their friends. Eremos activities are managed by a Council appointed by members and supported by three part-time staff and various volunteers.

Eremos is a unique community of voices encouraging dialogue among spiritual seekers of all backgrounds. We seek to listen and learn from Australia’s First Peoples, who have always cared for this land.

Our conversation is broad, considering personal explorations of faith and the challenges of engaging with contemporary, social and environmental issues. Eremos encourages people to experience the tensions between knowing and unknowing, belief and doubt.

In the many issues that face us, Eremos participation reminds people that spiritual matters are central to who we are. In the words of Colin Alcock, first Executive Director:

"Eremos says yes to depth, to diversity, to experiment and to connection."
