What we're about
Sunday Assembly is Edinburgh's secular congregation, we are family (and dog) friendly, fun and free to attend.
We have assemblies generally on the first Sunday of the month, and usually at LifeCare Stockbridge (with occasional exceptions). We tend to have around 30-70 people attending, and the assemblies last an hour. They typically include some congregational singing of well-known uplifting pop songs accompanied by the house band, some gorgeous poetry, a stimulating talk, cake, and a chance to chat with others.

Singing, inspiring talks, poems, reflections, chats, community, tea and cake - that's Sunday Assembly!
Sunday Assembly, the global movement of wonder and good for 'churches without God', continues in Edinburgh with our June assembly. It is on the theme Extra Years Of Zest with guest speaker James Wells. James is CEO of Lifecare Edinburgh (where we meet every month) and we are looking forward to hearing more about what goes on there when we're not around. LifeCare is a charity which supports the independence and wellbeing of older people, those with dementia and carers. Their overarching aim is 'extra years of zest' which sounds like a great idea all around.
And as usual there will be songs to sing with our house band, poems, reflections, chats, tea and cake. Join Edinburgh's 'secular congregation' and enjoy a wonderful start to your Sunday. We are about inclusive community, inspiring ourselves, supporting others and celebrating this one life we know we have.
Sunday 4 June 2023, 11.30am, Lifecare Edinburgh, 2 Cheyne St, Stockbridge EH4 1JB. Free to attend, family and dog friendly.
