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.
