What we're about

Sunday Assembly Nashville is a secular community that celebrates life!

Join us for our monthly Assembly with a great live band, a TED Talk-like guest speaker, and a member sharing a story from their life. We meet on the second Sunday of every month, at 10:30 am. We also host many other home meetups, social events, and a service project monthly.

Sunday Assembly Nashville is part of the international movement of people who want to celebrate the one life we know we have. It all started in London in January 2013. When traveling, look for other Assemblies in Atlanta, Knoxville, Los Angeles, San Diego, Detroit, and many more.

We are here for everyone who wants to:

* Live Better. We aim to provide inspiring, thought-provoking and practical ideas that help people to live the lives they want to lead and be the people they want to be;

*Help Often. Assemblies are communities of action building lives of purpose, encouraging us all to help anyone who needs it to support each other;

* Wonder More. Hearing talks, singing together, listening to readings and even playing games helps us to connect with each other and the awesome world we live in.

The Sunday Assembly

1. Is 100% celebration of life. We are born from nothing and go to nothing. Let’s enjoy it together.

2. Has no doctrine. We have no set texts so we can make use of wisdom from all sources.

3. Has no deity. We don’t do supernatural but we also won’t tell you you’re wrong if you do.

4. Is radically inclusive. Everyone is welcome, regardless of their beliefs – this is a place of love that is open and accepting.

5. Is free to attend, not-for-profit and volunteer run. We ask for donations to cover our costs and support our community work.

6. Has a community mission. Through our Action Heroes (you!), we will be a force for good.

7. Is independent. We do not accept sponsorship or promote outside businesses, organizations or services.

8. Is here to stay. With your involvement, The Sunday Assembly will make the world a better place.

9. We won’t tell you how to live, but will try to help you do it as well as you can.

10. And remember point 1…

The Sunday Assembly is a celebration of the one life we know we have. We want Sunday Assembly to be a place of love and compassion, where, no matter what your situation, you are welcomed, accepted and loved. Most of all, have fun, be nice and join in.

Upcoming events (4+)

Shape our monthly show/event! Sunday Assembly WoMo Committee

Needs a location

We'll meet by Zoom. Wonder More Committee plans the spoken parts of Sunday Assembly's one-of-a-kind monthly secular service (or show or event or lalapalooza). Everything except the music. Please join us. We'll start with a run-through of the reading and trying-my-best segments for the upcoming Assembly. Next we'll talk over names of people that might be invited to be future speakers and plan themes, nominate hosts to emcee for us and do everything else that makes this amazing event fun and educational every month. Josh Brown is our committee chair. Message any host of this meetup if you have questions or concerns. Contact a host for the Zoom login data.

Let's Celebrate Life, People!

Needs a location

Sunday Assembly Nashville is a secular congregation that celebrates life! We don't believe in the supernatural but won't tell you wrong if you do. We welcome all who welcome all! Our monthly event is designed to get us to laugh, sing a bit, learn something, and let our hair down.

Enjoy great danceable songs with the rocking Unnamed Assembly Band.

Pride Spirituality Night

Needs a location

Yes, that's right. Sunday Assembly has been invited to participate in "Pride Spirituality Night". Don't get the Heebie Jeebies! This looks like a great way to show how we "welcome all who welcome all". You know: "Radically Inclusive". The organizers have designed the event to purposefully be uplifting for all (quote "not a Christian leaning night"). We will join others: "Covenant of the Cross", "Nashville Pagan Coven", " Music City Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence", " Congregation Micah", an LGBT choir, "The Table Collaborative" and more to present some aspect of our celebrations/rituals. Pastor dawn, the Rainbow Pastor , has requested a head count so YOUR RSVP is very important.
