What we're about

The Sunday Assembly is a secular congregation that celebrates life, and the only way to truly understand it is to experience it for yourself. There will be singalong songs, moving stories, passionate speakers—all finished with tea and cake (or coffee and doughnuts!). Just by being with us you should be energised, vitalised, 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 place of compassion, where, no matter what your situation, you are welcomed, accepted, and loved. You can join a choir, sing in the band, attend and facilitate self-help groups, welcome those who are socially isolated, host potluck dinners, share hobbies, and much more. Most of all, have fun, be nice and join in.

SA Manchester Knit and Natter

Hello keen crafters, This session is a Live Better group created by Sunday Assembly Manchester. We meet up (online) to just chat and craft. It's a good opportunity to get to know some of the SA Manchester community and show off your handiwork. Although crafting is definitely optional.

We are especially reaching out to you, or anyone you know, who might be feeling isolated. We are here to support you. And of course, because it’s now online, you’re welcome to join us from anywhere, not just Manchester! *NEW ZOOM LINK, please be aware!* https://zoom.us/j/2472709402 If you need support to be able to access the meeting, please please MESSAGE US!
