Join a group

From its very beginning, Eremos has nurtured small group gatherings where people can
share their experiences and learn with and be nourished by one another in a common exploration.



The Eremos Membership Officer may be able to assist members to find others to form a group in their area.

Please feel free to email directly to the group contact listed near you. If you have any need of further assistance please contact

The focus of Eremos groups is on collegiality and sharing, rather than an expert leader. Each group chooses what resources they utilise. Some use the EREMOS magazine articles as stimulation for regular discussion.



There are several active Eremos groups. Please see below for details of their current activity and how to contact them. If you have any questions or would like to list your group here, please contact



Beecroft, Sydney

Meets: 2nd Saturday of each month (except January) 2:00pm to 4:00pm.

Southern Sydney 

Meets: 3:00-5:00pm, 2nd Saturday of the month.

Our group continues to meet monthly on a Saturday afternoon in the home of one our members. We are presently reflecting on the podcast Learning How to See, Season 5: Seven Stories. Over 8 episodes, Brian McLaren converses with Gareth Higgins (a writer and speaker who works in peace building and violence reduction) to help us explore the story patterns that can lead us towards — and away from — a more equitable and loving future.

Following that we hope to spend time reflecting on Garry Deverell's presentation Christ as Country: Aboriginal Spirituality and Christianity in conversation.

New members are welcome to call to learn more about our group.

After nearly 40 years of providing sets of books for groups and individuals to read and discuss, Eremos Books for Groups has closed down.  It was a wonderful resource for many people over the years, but after several years of only a handful of books being borrowed, the council made the decision to wind up this project.

We thank all the people who have helped to organise and administer our book borrowing scheme over the years and most recently Elaine Alinta, who facilitated the distribution of the hundreds of books from our library into new homes.
