We’ve come a long, long way together…

Sunday Assembly invites all our very dear friends, members and strangers from around the UK to join us for our latest national Mega Sunday Assembly at 11am 21st of March.

About A Board

At the Assembly on 18th October, there was a quick introduction from the Board of Trustees of the Sunday Assembly charity. But who are these mysterious (but lovely) people, and what do they do? What’s their connection with the actual assemblies? There are easy answers to these questions, but a […]

Celebrate SALA’s birthday online this Sunday.

Many Assemblies around the world are celebrating their Birthdays this month, and Sunday Assembly Los Angeles are treating us to a guest post from one of the leaders of their community, Ian Dodd.
