Melbourne: SEA of FAITH in AUSTRALIA (SoFiA)

sofialogoThe SoFiA Network promotes the open exploration of religion, spirituality and meaning. ‘Sea of Faith’ is not a church, but a network of people who are seeking a radical reappraisal of past religious traditions in order to meet today’s spiritual challenges. The Network affirms the continuing importance of religious thought and practice even though it acknowledges that religion, like art and poetry, is a purely human creation.
