InterWorship is an on-line gathering of the world’s various prayer and worship services. In sharing these services, it is our hope and aim to educate, eliminate fear and promote peace. So much misunderstanding comes from fear of the unknown. It is our prayer that with exposure to the world’s faith services and traditions will come greater tolerance, respect and understanding.
As these services are available on-line, they may be viewed anywhere there is internet connection - in the comfort of people’s homes, in offices, classrooms and in more remote areas where such services would otherwise not be seen. Equipped with a smart phone, tablet or laptop, a person who is ill or infirm may worship from their bedside.
Websites with locations of these services and congregations are provided in order to help the spiritual seeker searching for a spiritual home---whether it be in their own tradition or another. It is an opportunity for faith congregations to communicate their message and share what they offer as well.
InterWorship is the recognition that by whatever language we worship the Divine, God (by whatever name or no name) is ONE. The spirit of which is inclusive, all embracing and rooted in Universal Love. We at World Awake assert that each religion and human being are God’s vessels created to make manifest the Light within. It is the recognition that these vessels, though externally different, burn with the same Divine fire. There is no us versus them. No you versus me. We come together to praise God and celebrate unity in diversity.
The term InterWorship and its concept were given to Rev. Susanna Stefanachi Macomb, our Executive Director of Global Outreach and InterWorship, while in communion with the Divine.
With hearts filled with love and joy, we welcome you to join us.

The Universal Worship was the inspiration of Hazrat Inayat Khan, a mystic scholar and musician who brought Universal Sufism to the West from India. He created a service wherein the followers of any of the world’s religions could feel at home. The first service was celebrated in 1921 and since that time has been held in many countries around the world. Temples dedicated to the Universal Worship, called Universels, have been built in Katwijk, Holland; Suresnes, France; Bothell WA, USA; and Cape Town, South Africa. Universal Worship has participated in the Parliament of World Religions held in Barcelona (2004), Salt Lake City (2015) and Toronto, Canada (2018). Hazrat Inayat Khan’s work was continued by his son, Pir Vilayat Khan, and currently by his grandson, Pir Zia Khan.
