My name is Mike O'Sullivan and on the 24th of February 2017, I was ordained and installed as Minister of this church having completed my academic training at the Priory Institute in Dublin, where I am at the moment pursuing further studies in theology.
I became the first Cork man to be appointed to the ministry of this church in almost 200 years and am the latest in a line that goes back to 1717.
My theology is liberal & progressive, like many Unitarians, I find definitions of what we call " God" can be restrictive.
My own belief is that such a Higher Power is to be experienced by each as they are able rather than defined through creeds and doctrine.
I believe there are many paths to this power, many stories, from many sources that can expand our experience and understanding. I believe that we honour both God & life by striving to be who we are meant to be. As such I value ecumenical work with other churches.
Our church is open & inclusive, we welcome all.
