The work of OneSpirit interfaith ministers takes many different forms, as we bring our ministry into every facet of life. Here are some examples:

What was it that first called you to join the OneSpirit training? Two things. Reading the brochure (there was no website then) made this grown man cry from start to finish with joy and recognition. Also, the opportunity to explore the great faith traditions with fellow seekers in an experiential way. In which year were…

What was it that first called you to join the OneSpirit training? I had been looking for a new direction in my life and had gone down a few dead ends. But I was not clear in myself what it was I was looking for. Then, when I read the description on the website, everything…

Teaching and ministry are indivisible for Dorota, whether as classroom cover teacher or global ambassador   I’m basically just a teacher, but I have an unusual job — and methods. I work freelance as a classroom teacher in different roles for the local authority here in Moray, and in Highland. Often I’ll do a whole…

Tim finds that his two roles as a professional storyteller and minister strengthen each other As human beings, we need stories to help us understand ourselves. They help us to make sense of our own experience, and to appreciate why others behave as they do. Yet often in modern life, we don’t make time to…

As a doula, Mel accompanies women through childbirth, celebrating the Divine Feminine creating new life This calling goes back to the difficult circumstances of my own birth. My mum had an eclamptic fit while delivering me. She was in a coma for three days, and obviously it would have been really distressing for both of…

After a dramatic career change, Ann led 1,000 funerals in 7 years as a minister January 2015 was my busiest month ever, with 37 funerals. Eleven of those were in a single week.
