What we're about

Sunday Assembly is a secular community which meets monthly to hear great talks, sing pop songs, engage in service projects, and celebrate this one life we know we have.

What happens at a Sunday Assembly?

A primary event is Sunday Assembly service which takes place every three months on the second Sunday at 11 AM. It consists of songs (pop songs mainly) sung by the congregation and a band, a reading (usually a poem), an interesting talk (that fits into live better, help often or wonder more), a moment of reflection and an address, which sums up the day and hopefully gives a take home message. We have coffee, tea and cake to encourage people to stay and mingle with one another. Outside of the event we organize small groups (Smoups) and other social activities such as book clubs and game night, peer-to-peer support and local volunteering, parties and more community building activities.

Title: "Voting For Your Boss: How Cooperatives Bring Democracy into The Workplace" Summary: Contrary to the hierarchical dictatorship in most traditional businesses, cooperatives bring the American ideal of democracy into the institutions where we all spend a 1/3 of our lives. From bosses being subject to their employees to small pay gaps between the lowest paid and highest paid workers, cooperatives seem to flip the very concept of the firm on it's head! Join worker-owner Devney Hamilton as she talks about cooperatives, what it's like to work in a cooperative, and how her specific company - Sassafrass Tech Collective - is structured.

Sunday Assembly Detroit: Healthcare For All

Your Emerging Space

Sunday Assembly Detroit is a secular 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. Summary: With healthcare getting increasingly expensive, it's time to look at some other solutions to the problem. One such solution is Healthcare For All. Healthcare expenses hit working families and minorities the hardest, costing thousands of dollars annually in premiums alone. It is only fitting, then, that we discuss Healthcare For All in conjunction with Mother's Day this year. Come join us as we discuss the idea of making quality healthcare accesible to everyone!
