"We train and enable open-hearted men and women with an inclusive global spirituality, to serve people from all faiths or none.

Our name changed to The Interfaith Seminary in 2002, and we became a registered charity in 2004. Miranda's own growth and development into an outstanding teacher and facilitator of spiritual awakening - as a minister, counsellor, programme leader and author - culminated in her decision in 2006 to step down as the Seminary's spiritual director, and to become a travelling teacher. She now leads spiritual retreats around the world, and is known as Miranda Macpherson, or simply Miranda.
Early in 2009, a further change in organisational structure took place. The Interfaith Foundation was established as the trustee body with overall responsibility for both student teaching (the Interfaith Seminary) and the support of our ministers (the Interfaith Ministers Association).

We have a close relationship of reciprocal support with the One Spirit Interfaith Seminary and Learning Alliance (HERE at the Multiplex) in New York, which also emerged from The New Seminary. The spiritual director of One Spirit Interfaith Seminary, Rev Diane Berke, usually attends and contributes to our annual retreat and Ordination ceremony, and we are represented at the equivalent events in New York.
