Robert Hardies

Unitarian Minister

All Souls Church

The Rev. Robert Hardies has served since 2001 as senior minister of All Souls Church, Unitarian, a vibrant and diverse congregation in the heart of Washington, DC. 

At All Souls, Rob has been an advocate for racial justice and affordable housing, and an ally to DC's immigrant community. In 2009, Rob helped lead the struggle to make DC only the seventh jurisdiction in the nation to embrace marriage equality. DC’s mayor signed that historic legislation in the sanctuary of All Souls Church. In 2014, readers of Washington City Paper voted All Souls Church DC’s “Best House of Worship,” and Rob its “Best Religious Leader.”

He is the editor of Blessing the World, a collection of essays by the feminist theologian Rebecca Ann Parker.
