Sunday Assembly Reading

Sunday Assembly is radically inclusive. Everyone is welcome, regardless of their beliefs – this is a family-friendly place of love that is open and accepting.

The Sunday Assembly is an excellent way to meet new people, to find a community, to help others, and to feel a bit better about yourself and the world around you.

We won’t tell you how to live but will try to help you do it as well as you can.

It can be a bit difficult to describe what A Sunday Assembly actually is. Perhaps looking at some previous Assemblies will do better than words.
