About the team
Passed down through the generations of ordained OneSpirit ministers, the OneLight Gathering is a precious and powerful offering to the public and Interfaith community. A quiet refuge of kindness and reflection, this monthly space owes its thanks to a dedicated team of volunteers both past and present. We bow deeply in gratitude to those who have gone before us & rejoice in those who tenderly and fiercely hold this monthly space for us all.

rev. Alison chisholm trower
Alison was ordained in 2014 with the OneSpirit Interfaith Seminary. She describes herself as a poet, facilitator, mystic and minister supporting and inspiring spiritual inquiry & human experience.
Her spiritual inquiry started over 20 years ago when she began intensely meditating and following a spiritual calling at the same time as she began exploring related key themes in her creative artistic practice of writing, drawing and performing.
These themes were based around questions about consciousness, wellbeing, relationships, integrity, trust, mental health, public and private self, physical experience, mystical experience, honesty, inspiration, layers and complexity, story, being, the ways we communicate, mirror each other, support one another and the way we perceive and talk about our world.
Alison offers one to one intuitive counselling and healing sessions. She has co-led the OneLight Gatherings since January 2016 and has also held sacred baby-blessings, weddings and funerals.
REV. christopher marcus
Christopher’s ministry is built on the foundation of 34 years of research into and the practice of Spiritual Theatre based on the teachings of Rudolf Steiner. As a director and teacher he has taken performers from all walks of life and diverse disciplines on a path of spiritual development through the Mystery of the spoken Word. This work has led him to the borders of what can be called entertainment, and to the core question of what it means to be ones true Self.
Going through the portal of ordination at the Interfaith Seminary has been the answer to his search for authenticity, enabling him to help others come closer to themselves through the discipline of Spiritual Counselling. This process creates the container for deepening one’s relation to The Divine through ritual and ceremony as well as nurturing the wonder of human interaction in the intense group work offered by the seminary’s curriculum.
Christopher is married with three children and lives in East Sussex.

Passionate about the Arts & its ability to connect us, her most recent album Watchmaker’s Daughter explores the universal themes of time, hope & love. She elaborated on this topic at London's TEDx conference, encouraging people to use timepieces as a gentle reminder to embrace small moments with gratitude.
Amy is also deeply curious about compassion in action & spiritual leadership and is currently exploring this via Sacred Activists Leadership programme run by St Ethelburga's Centre for Peace & Reconciliation.
She is also founder of The Vulnerability Project, an online conversation around creativity and courage which shines light into the dark corners that can often chaperone a creative livelihood.
