What we're about

Sunday Assembly Brighton is a secular group that come together to celebrate life. Our motto is: live better, help often, wonder more. Our mission is to help everyone find and fulfil their full potential. It is part of a worldwide movement. More details can be found on our website at: https://sundayassemblybrighton.com/about/

On the fourth Sunday of every month we meet at the (deconsecrated) St Andrew's, Waterloo Street, Hove. Come and explore our monthly theme through the medium of pop songs, talks, stories, readings and cake. We're always looking for local contributors for inspiring talks, so do get in touch if you fancy it!

In addition, we run other regular events and particularly our ‘Wander More/Wonder More’ walks. These are generally short walks of about 5 miles in the Brighton area often held on the second Sunday of the month. We encourage walkers to talk to others while they walk and we stop periodically to discuss the history or other feature of the walk.

Sunday Assembly Brighton: Friendship

Middle Street Primary School

You are invited to join us on Sunday 23rd June for our monthly secular celebration of life, where we'll be exploring the theme of friendship, accompanied by sea shanties and singalong pop songs. Our guest speakers for June are the awesome Duck Pond Sailors, a group of local lads that learn and sing traditional sea shanties and Sussex folk songs, usually in a nice cosy ale house keeping a safe distance from any dangerous sea conditions (or dodgy movies trying to cash in on the resurgent sea shanty trend). The story of their harmonious exploits will be complemented by a healthy dash of science, personal reflections, a communal singsong and lashings of free tea & cake immediately afterwards. The songs are: 1) With A Little Help From My Friends (Beatles) 2) Stand By Me (Ben E King) 3) Reach (S Club 7) ****IMPORTANT: We are trying out a new venue in the Lanes this month; Middle Street Primary School. Also, it doesn't have any mugs, so please bringing a reusable cup for your coffee, if you have one.**** Entry is completely FREE and if you've got any little people who might get restless during all the talking, watch this space for details of our co-located Young Assembly... YOUNG ASSEMBLY Young Assembly, for 7+ kids, will play games and activities to not find not muscular strength, but the inner strengths that everyone has. :) Full details at: https://sundayassemblybrighton.com/young-assembly/ FOODBANK FEATURE We will also be running our popular foodbank collection at the main entrance: making it super simple for you to donate any in-date, non-perishable food and toiletries that you can spare (ie. tins, packets, jars and bottles). ---------------------------------------- ABOUT SUNDAY ASSEMBLY The Sunday Assembly is a worldwide network of non-religious gatherings which aims to uplift and inspire through readings, talks, silent contemplation and classic pop songs. http://www.sundayassembly.com/ Sunday Assembly Brighton takes place on the fourth Sunday of every month NOTE: Signing up via Meetup is not required for attendance.

Wander More/Wonder More walk around Shoreham

Adur Ferry Bridge

This is a really interesting circular walk of about 5 miles around Shoreham and its harbour. We'll initially walk up the river Adur on an old disused railway track with great views of Lancing College. We'll then cross the old toll bridge and walk back down the river side past Shoreham Airport and the houseboats before crossing to the seashore. There is a lovely board walk now down to Shoreham Fort - a fascinating 19th century fortification. Finally we'll walk back up the river Adur into Shoreham and over the new footbridge. As usual, we will be learning a bit about the geography and history of the area along the way. It will be a great chance to get some fresh air and stretch your legs in some spectacular scenery, while chatting with other friendly people along the way. The walk will be guided by Pete Comley. NOTES: 1. There are no hills on this route. 2. The path is mainly surfaced so you could probably get away with ordinary shoes or trainers. 3. At the end of the walk, you’ll also be welcome to join us for Sunday lunch at Chambers Bistro (optional). Please let us know in advance to book you a table. 4. Dogs are welcome on the walk on leads. 5. If the walk needs to be cancelled due to very poor weather, we'll let you know 24 hours before and this will also be posted on our Facebook page.
