What we’re about
Sunday Assembly London is a secula, nonpartisan community celebrating life! We get together on the first and third Sundays of every month to sing pop songs, hear poetry, listen to great speakers talking about life, science and other fascinating stuff, sing some more songs, and then have tea and cake.
Our goals are to LIVE BETTER, HELP OFTEN and WONDER MORE. We're open to everyone, and our Sunday morning events are free (donations welcome, of course).
We also have social groups and fundraising events - please sign up to receive our weekly newsletter so you can find out about all of our upcoming events and other important info from our community: http://eepurl.com/dn-2ED
Upcoming events (3)See all
- Tea and TED in October!!Link visible for attendees
Time to watch a TED and have a chat about it - any suggestions?
I look forward to a lively discussion! :)
For anyone who is new to the group, this is very relaxed and informal session with little structure to the chat. We do encourage people to use the "raise hand" feature if they are trying to speak but finding it hard to jump into the conversation. I endeavour to remember to welcome any new people at the start, if I fail to do this, please do introduce yourself if you feel comfortable
- Sunday Assembly London Article Club #58National Theatre, London
We don't know which articles we will be reading yet because it depends what you vote for :). I will link a voting form in the chat in the next few days.
Here is a recap of how the Club works:
1. We meet every six weeks or so in or near the National Theatre.
2. We vote in advance and pick two articles from a short list to read before we meet. Usually one relates to politics/current affairs and the other to history, culture or science.
3. We talk about each one for around half an hour and the beauty of Article Club is that we can think more deeply about the broader themes of a topic, and how well the article gets to grips with them.
4. We each give a score out of 10 for the articles that have been discussed.
5. We set the date for the next Article Club and sometimes adjourn to the pub.
The point of Article Club is to challenge ourselves to read a diverse range of articles, share them with like-minded people and deal with our anxiety that we aren't reading books. Article Club was set up by Ross Bailey in 2015 who did a fantastic job at running it. Ross was followed by the equally fantastic Claire Ferraro and I (Alistair Baker) have been in the chair for the last five years.
OUR NEXT MEETUP: ARTICLE CLUB #58
Thursday 19th October - 7:30pm to around 9:15pm. We sit on the soft round seats in the Lyttleton Theatre bar on the first floor.
I will put a link to the voting form on here on 5th October and then you can vote for what we read and discuss.

Come one, come all to Sunday Assembly London's annual seasonal singalong, Yule Rock!
We're decking the halls and jingling our bells as we return to Conway Hall for the most festive night of the year. All your favourite Christmas classics will be included, from Elton to Wizzard, plus a few surprises, as always. Hosted by talented comedian, writer and secular activist Ariane Sherine, who is known for using her wit and passion in building inclusive communities, this event will feature live music by our community band, and a cashless bar serving alcoholic and alcohol-free beverages (please bring your card or smartphone).
Dress your silliest, sparkliest best - Christmas jumpers, baubles, fairy lights, antlers, and other wintry delights are welcome! This all-ages party will be full of joy for family and friends. Doors open at 7pm for drinks, with the singing and dancing kicking off at 7:30pm.
Yule Rock is brought to you by Sunday Assembly London, a secular community that celebrates life under the motto of “Live Better, Help Often, Wonder More”. It is a heart-warming and inclusive gathering, embodying the essence of Sunday Assembly's core values of community, joy, and wonder. It is the perfect occasion for individuals of all backgrounds to come together, sing their hearts out, and revel in the holiday cheer without any religious affiliations.
