Sunday Assembly was started by Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans, two comedians who were on the way to a gig in Bath when they discovered they both wanted to do something that was like church but totally secular and inclusive of all—no matter what they believed. The first ever Sunday Assembly meeting took place on January 6th 2013 at The Nave in Islington. Almost 200 people turned up at the first meeting.
Now there are over 40 Sunday Assemblies around the world, operating independently, where people sing songs, hear inspiring talks, and create community together in a family-friendly and inclusive setting.
- 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.
Sunday Assembly so much more than just a wonderful event twice a month. It’s about each and every person who is part of the community and us all living our lives to the fullest.
