The Sea of Faith Network

SOF 2017

We alone create our religion and our faith

Sea of Faith is a network of groups and individuals who share the understanding that religions and religious faith are creations of the human mind and explore together the implications of that understanding for their moral, spiritual, social and cultural values.

SOF welcomes people from all faith and humanist communities, and those with no involvement in any organised religion. The membership reflects a range of experiential, intuitive and intellectual concerns.

Sea of Faith Network

30th Annual Conference

This year Sea of Faith have invited

Abby Day, Dilwar Hussain and Richy Thompson

to speak at their 30th Annual Conference


Last year, we explored the future of religion.

This year, we hope to broaden the question; to look at some aspects of the future of the Human Race – not the geopolitical future of everything but of just (?) being human, whatever that means for us and others. Religion or no religion we all share this characteristic.

Accepting that most of us continue to create our own Gods, as societies and individuals, and that our lives and the lives of others are driven in part by these, let us look at some;  Consumerism, Greed, Knowledge, Power Politics. Despite these, or perhaps through them, what makes us human? Do we make and control our Gods or do they make and control us? What values can and should survive?

Can our feelings of compassion, empathy, ethics, morality, survive in the face of the increasing and seemingly de-humanising pressures and demands of the IT age?
