What we're about

Sunday Assembly San Diego is a non-religious congregation that celebrates life. Our motto: live better, help often, wonder more. 
Join us for a one hour celebration with some songs and a guest speaker, followed by coffee and snacks. Sunday Assembly San Diego is part of the international movement of people who want to celebrate the one life we know we have. Together, we are Sunday Assembly Everywhere. When traveling, look for other Assemblies in Los Angeles, Nashville, Atlanta, Edinburgh, Utrecht, London, etc. 
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 as one, 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. Everyone is welcome, regardless of their beliefs – this is a place that is open and accepting. We welcome all who welcome all.
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. What should you expect from a Sunday Assembly event? Just by being with us you should be energized, vitalized, restored, repaired, refreshed and recharged. No matter what the subject of the Assembly, it will solace worries, provoke kindness and inject a touch of transcendence into the everyday. But life can be tough… It is. Sometimes bad things happen to good people, we have moments of weakness or life just isn’t fair. We want The Sunday Assembly to be a house 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.

Game Night - Scattergories on Zoom

Link visible for attendees

Scattergories is a super simple and fun word game, and family friendly. The game host will explain the rules at the beginning, so bring a writing implement and paper or cell phone to take notes on.

The Zoom link is at the bottom. Only people who have RSVPd on Meetup will be allowed in due to previous zoom bombing.

Some Zoom pointers:

  • It's fantastic if we can see each other's faces and hear each other while we play, but we know maybe not everyone can do both. But please participate, even if you sit out a round out to see how it's played or to take a break. This is a game, but also excellent time to hang out and crack jokes. (Non-participants/Zoom bombers may be kicked off.)
  • It helps if you get your camera set up and at the right angle and lighting BEFORE you join Zoom.
  • And please, if possible, use earbuds or headphones for your audio instead of your device's built in speakers; it'll cut down on feedback, echo, and extra noise for everyone.

Talk-o Tuesdays

Link visible for attendees

Let's hang out and let the conversation go where it goes. What are you binge watching or reading? How's your family doing? Having weird dreams? Whether it's silly or serious, community and connection is just what the doctor ordered. Bring your best dad joke to start off.

Here is the Zoom meeting info:

Sunday Assembly with Dr. Eric Huff IN PERSON AND STREAMING

Bankers Hill Club House (also known as San Diego Indoors Sports Club)

This 100th Assembly in San Diego (holy French toast, people! 100?!?) is in-person AND streaming online. Because of the current triple threat of COVID, the flu, and RSV, masks are strongly recommended when in person.

Immediately after this assembly, we will use our 100th assembly celebration as an excuse to hang out at the venue with music and potluck food and good company. Please see this Meetup and RSVP for that here.

Seeing the Sound of the Big Bang

Modern astronomers speak with quite a lot of confidence about the physical properties of our Universe. We know its age and composition to surprising levels of precision, and can say a great deal about the evolution of the Universe over cosmic time. In many respects, we know more about the earliest era of the Universe than we do about much more mundane aspects of everyday existence here on Earth.

Dr. Eric Huff of Jet Propulsion Laboratory will provide an overview of how we know so much about the most remote regions and times in the cosmos, and explain how and why we can see the afterglow of the Big Bang — called the Cosmic Microwave Background — and what it tells us about our own origins.
Here's the Zoom link for anyone who wants to attend online:

Sunday Assembly San Diego is an inclusive non-religious community that meets monthly to hear inspirational talks, connect for service projects, sing songs and generally celebrate life. Assemblies are free to attend, and everyone is welcome.

We are located at the Bankers Hill Club, which features an accessible facility, including accessible parking spots and bathrooms.

Stay after the assembly for a low-key shindig, really just using our 100th assembly as an excuse to mingle and talk and eat and be humans together.


100th Assembly Celebration POTLUCK

Bankers Hill Club House (also known as San Diego Indoors Sports Club)

Can y'all believe that it's our 100th Sunday Assembly in San Diego? Boy, how time flies! [insert other overused and tired adage here]

Join us after the February assembly for a casual hang at our venue! If the weather's nice, we can move onto the patio overlooking the gorgeous San Diego bay.

  • We'll provide: music, water and soda, turkey wraps, ice, coffee, utensils and plates, etc.
  • You'll provide: YOU! Oh, and side dishes, desserts, snacks. You know the potluck drill, whatever toots your trumpet.

This event is black tie optional, lol

And please check back in roughly *checks calendar* 9 years from now for our 200th assembly celebration potluck!

Just like at the assembly that happens right before this hangout, because of the current triple threat of COVID, the flu, and RSV, masks are strongly recommended if we are inside.
