Live Better. Help Often. Wonder More. This is the New York branch of Sunday Assembly! The Sunday Assembly is a godless congregation that meets to hear great talks, sing songs and generally celebrate the wonder of life. It’s a service for anyone who wants to live better, help often and wonder more. We started in London in January 2013 and we accidentally became a movement. There are now Assemblies in Exeter, Melbourne, New York and Bristol, with Southend and Brighton starting soon. The Sunday Assembly is the brainchild of comedians Sanderson Jones (bearded, over-excitable, international purveyor of The Comedy Sale) and Pippa Evans (musical, hilarious, BBC Radio 4, 4 Extra, The Showstoppers) who discovered on one long car journey to a gig that they were both thinking about starting a friendly community gathering for like-minded people.

Please join us in this quest to bring reason, appreciation, and wonder into the lives of anyone who wants to play along with us!  Tell your friends.  A godless gathering with terrific talks, great live music, and cool people — what better NYC experience do you want for your Sunday mornings?
