The Sea of Faith Network SoF is an organisation with the stated aim to explore and promote religious faith as a human creation. The SoF movement started in as a response to Don Cupitt 's book and television series , both titled Sea of Faith. The name Sea of Faith is taken from Matthew Arnold 's nostalgic mid 19th century poem " Dover Beach ", in which the poet expresses regret that belief in a supernatural world is slowly slipping away; the "sea of faith" is withdrawing like the ebbing tide.

Following the television series, a small group of radical Christian clergy and laity began meeting to explore how they might promote this new understanding of religious faith. Starting with a mailing list of sympathisers, they organised the first UK conference in Annual national conferences have been a key event of the network ever since. The Sea Of Faith Network holds national and regional conferences and promotional events each year. There is an active network of local groups who meet regularly for discussion and exploration.

The group's magazine Sofia is published bi-monthly in the United Kingdom. It has a circulation beyond the SoF membership. The group also maintains a web site and an on-line discussion group. The world-wide membership, as of , stood at about 2, Each national network is run by a steering committee elected from its members.

SoF has no official creed or statement of belief to which members are required to assent, seeing itself as a loose network rather than a formal religious movement or organisation. Its stated aim is to "explore and promote religious faith as a human creation". Some even refer to themselves as agnostic, atheist, or simply nontheist see Christian atheism.

SoF possesses no religious writings or ceremonies of its own; many members remain active in their own religion mainly but not exclusively Christian while others have no religious affiliation at all. A number of commentators have identified SoF as closely associated with the non-realist approach to religion. Cupitt wrote, "God is the sum of our values, representing to us their ideal unity, their claims upon us and their creative power". Since he began writing in , Cupitt has produced 36 books.

During this time his views have continued to evolve and change. Everything is non-real, including God. While Cupitt was the founding influence of SoF and is much respected for his work for the network, it would not be true to say that he is regarded as a guru or leader of SoF. Members are free to dissent from his views and Cupitt himself has argued strongly that SoF should never be a fan club. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The Sea of Faith made a huge impact when it was first published to accompany a major television series in the mid 's. For a generation that was embodying the ebbing of the tide of faith, it articulated the huge intellectual and cultural shifts that had resulted in most people no longer having any connection with official religion. For many who, whilst still going to church, glimpsed horizons wider than those offered by traditional forms of religious thought, The Sea of Faith offered liberating freedom, encouraging them to have minds of their own in matters of faith. For many more who had abandoned the church, it once again made the wider question a matter of serious and worthwhile concern.
