The Eremos Council

The work of Eremos is guided by elected Council members. They meet approximately 6 times per year on Zoom, coordinating the teams who oversee various Eremos projects such as the magazine, events, retreats, Books for groups, regional groups, website and membership. Eremos Council members live in various parts of New South Wales, Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory. 

Current Eremos Council members share why they are passionate about volunteering for Eremos



Bethany South


I am passionate about providing welcoming, hospitable and safe places for people to explore, express and deepen spirituality.  I like that Eremos attracts people of all stages on the journey of life and faith and how it invites people into spaces for reflection and conversation, solitude and community. I am grateful for the way that Eremos and its members have enriched my journey of life and faith.




Kate Scholl

Events and Communications Coordinator

Eremos connects with my core values and desire to find/create/explore meaning with others. I am inspired and awed at times by the poignant writing in the magazine. I value the collaboration, the diversity, and the depth of perspectives members share.





Elaine Alinta

Books for Groups Coordinator

I like the openness and diversity of Eremos. It encourages all our journeys.







Joe Janssen


Eremos encourages and helps me to deepen and strengthen my spirituality. I value what I learn from other Eremos members.







John Foulcher

EREMOS Magazine Editor

I’m attracted to Eremos’s sensible, experiential approach to Christianity and spirituality in general. It’s an intelligent, thoughtful contribution to our spiritual discourse in this country; it’s thorough but not esoteric, sensitive rather than dogmatic.






Lindy Frazer

Council Secretary

I am so grateful for a gift membership of Eremos which has led me to a spiritual journey without borders and where I have found soul friends and nourishment.

Elizabeth Albiston

EREMOS Small group facilitator

The Eremos ethos of gathering together and exploring our spirituality in an Australian context is what first attracted me.  It continues to engage me in many ways particularly as I seek to grow and to serve.  It is a real privilege to be a Council member of Eremos and the facilitator for the Mornington Peninsula Eremos group.

Louise Dobson

I enjoy being on the Eremos Council, as I feel I am working with like-minded spiritual seekers, who are wanting to live their lives at a deeper level. I also feel truly heard, listened to, and acknowledged by the Council members.
