Pluralism Resources

Thanks for visiting!
Below are some of key resources that assisted me during pioneering work undertaken as Chaplain at Flinders University in Adelaide, South Australia.

I established and worked within a multifaith team at Oasis, an interfaith centre of hospitality.

(Note: Papers I have presented, applying principles within these resources, are found at My Papers

  1. Hi Geoff, just read your book and really enjoyed it. It resonates with much of the work we are seeking to do here in the UK and especially in children's and young people’s healthcare. We are launching the first multi disciplinary children’s chaplaincy module in the UK next year and will add your book to our reading list.
