An Atheist Church!?

 

The Sunday Assembly is a godless congregation that meets on the first Sunday of every month (in the UK) 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 andwonder more.” Does this sound good to you, or too churchy even without god? Many non-believers say that they want many of the things that churches offer-sans God. Sanderson Jones has created such a place in the UK and is finding a positive response among many non-believers.

Over 600 people attended their last service,  5 new permanent Assemblies are launching from June - September and 700 others have asked to start their own. Could the next Great Revival be godless? Whatever you think, it should be a fun night. Sanderson Jones is a stand up comedian by trade - last year he sold out the Sydney Opera House selling every ticket by hand (he also is also in the Guinness Book of Records for the World's Longest Hug).

    I'm interested to hear his idea. I'm also interested in crossing paths with others from similar local groups. Hope to chat with many of you! I just may wear my long white spotted pink feathered clown hat. Come say hi if you dare :)

    Still sounds waaay too churchy for my taste. I sure hope it doesn't 'evolve' into another religion. We certainly don't need another one of those.

    A bit late on a Sunday night for me, but looks like an interesting concept.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
