Sunday Assembly Edinburgh

Come and see us at the Sunday Assembly in Edinburgh! (It's Free!!!)
The Sunday Assembly is a godless congregation that meets to hear great talks, sing songs and generally celebrate the wonder of life. It’s a service for anyone who wants to live better, help often and wonder more. We want to take all the well known attributes of church services across the country and apply them to a new community that's not reliant on religion.
Sunday Assemblies started in London in January 2013 and it are now spreading worldwide. There are now Assemblies in Exeter, Melbourne, New York and Bristol, with Glasgow, Southend and Brighton starting soon. Here's some background info if you've never heard of us before :-
All ages are welcome (literally, ALL ages), those with or without faith and a desire to want to help in some way to helping to create a community would be nice. We'd like to see the Sunday Assembly Community get together outside the monthly Sunday meetings just for a social or to do a litter pick for example (when the weather is better), or perhaps even to help with something you tell us about. Suggestions are always welcome and we can work on whatever Edinburgh needs. We're having our first social get together on Sunday 10th November (11am at the Bingo Hall) to have a chat about what we'dlike our community to do and then we'll move to a local pub for a drink and perhaps some lunch.
Edinburgh had a couple of Assemblies during the Festival but the regular Assemblies were launched in October 2013. The Edinburgh team is a group of passionate volunteers who are keen to make sure Edinburgh takes advantage of the Sunday Assembly ethos and new volunteers are always welcome to join in.
For this Sunday Assembly the theme is "Living Better". Our Speaker will be broadcaster, producer and performer Richard Melvin (Richard was recommended to us by the fab comedian Jo Caulfield) - 'Richard started his career in broadcasting as a volunteer at Radio Forth, he produced The Fred MacAulay Show for nearly 5 years and has worked with with some of the biggest names in the UK entertainment industry.' We also have a real live performance Poet - Sophia Walker - who won the BBC's Poetry Slam during the 2013 Fringe Festival and she has agreed to do a reading of her own work for us. There'll also be an opportunity to sing along to some uplifting but probably quite cheesy pop songs and to have a quick chat with your neighbours in what may be the pinkest room in the whole of Edinburgh.
10.45 am for a 11am start and we finish at 12pm.
