Brisbane Powerhouse & Sunday Assembly Brisbane Present:
The international Sunday Assembly Roadshow is coming to town! Join UK comedian Sanderson Jones as he launches Sunday Assembly Brisbane.
The Sunday Assembly is a godless congregation that meets to hear great talks, sing songs and celebrate the wonder of life. Eight months after launching in London, it’s become an international phenomenon, with satellite assemblies launching in twenty cities around the world.
Come along to the Brisbane launch and hear founder/comedian Sanderson Jones speak about his passion for celebrating life. Experience the joy of belting out a feel-good song within the safety of a crowd, and have a cuppa afterwards while getting to know other people in your community who want to live better, help often and wonder more.

Our itinerary for the night:
ABC Compass is filming our launch! So please be aware that you may be filmed as an audience member/Sunday Assembler arriving to the venue and during the launch.
The Songs, in case you wish to practice before-hand, are: Stand by Me, We Can Work it Out, Imagine and Don't Worry Be Happy. We will be Rocking Out on the first two numbers but then, with respect to other events and patrons of the Brisbane Powerhouse, going *acoustic* for the last two songs. Music Director Karen Anderson will be leading us with humour and grace and we ask you to bring your humour, grace and awareness to these quieter moments also.
Our guest speaker Michael Doneman's company Edgeware has a three-part DNA: Make money, have fun, change the world. Bouncing off that structure he is going to share his views on how capitalism might have a human face, and that entrepreneurs can make things better; that there is a counterforce, and that there are reasons to be cheerful!
The Hat will be passed at a certain point during the event. The Brisbane Powerhouse has been incredibly generous in their support of this event but there have still been considerable start-up costs that have accrued and been paid for out of individual member pockets. There is certainly no obligation to give, but if you are willing and able we appreciate your support.
And finally, if you need a seat we encourage you to PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY.As we have mentioned before, seating on the Turbine Platform is limited. If you know you need a seat please arrive in plenty of time to claim one.
