Hello from Sunday Assembly Sydney!  

The Sunday Assembly was started in the UK by Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans, two comedians who discovered they both wanted to do something that was like church (community, volunteering, reflection, joyous carol concerts!) but without religion so it could be inclusive of all — no matter what they believed.  

There are now over 70 assemblies around the world creating inspiring, fun and caring communities, all with a pretty cool motto - Live Better, Help Often and Wonder More!  - so welcome to the Sydney one!

To find out more about The Sunday Assembly movement, have a look here.


What can you expect?

We get together for an hour on the last Sunday of every month (at Redfern or Erskineville) and sing awesome pop songs (a bit like the Late Late show's carpool karaoke), hear inspiring talks (a bit like TED), listen to insightful readings, then mingle afterwards and make new friends over tea and cake.   We encourage everyone to have fun, be nice and join in!

We also run 'smoups' - these are small groups that get together to do things like volunteering with local charities, simply socialising (!), meeting over a beer for a philosophical discussion, or getting creative and crafty.   


Curious? first timer?

Check out this article on Sydney Weekend Notes from a Sydneysider's first visit or listen to Sanderson Jones, (British comedian and co-founder of Sunday Assembly) explain what it's all about! 

Everything is offered for free, but we do not have any outside sponsorship so we rely on the generosity of our members to keep us running.  


Help build the community!

We are just a toddler (2 and a half years old!) and are always looking for ways to develop, learn and rejig what we do - so please don't hesitate to share your ideas with us. 

If you'd also like to get more involved with the community to help keep us running then we have lots of super easy things to action - such as setting out chairs, counting the number of attendees, taking photos at the event, posting on facebook, baking a cake, setting up tea and coffee! Help with any small task is greatly appreciated. Come talk to Jo, Jodie, Emma or Juliet at an assembly if you're up for volunteering - and thank you in advance!
