The Sunday Assembly is a secular congregation that celebrates life
Let’s enjoy it together, to Live Better, Wonder More and Help Often.
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.
We won’t tell you how to live, but will try to help you do it as well as you can.
Our free secular Assembly consists of singing great pop and rock songs, a poem, an interesting talk and community outreach, bookended by tea, cakes, and a chat.
Sunday Assembly is an excellent way to discover new friends and find support for your community.
Doors open at 10:30, show kicks off at 11 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. @ The Purple Turtle, Gun Street, Reading, RG1 2JR
Life is change. If nothing else then age will change you, so you better have your eyes open that you choose your path wisely.
This month’s speaker is Mark Lynas, an author, journalist and environmental activist who focuses on climate change. When Mark changed his mind of nuclear power and GMOs his world changed and his talk ‘How I learned to stop worrying and love GMOs’ will be that story
After, and before the show, join us for a cake and a warm drink.
We will still supply an extensive range of gorgeous homemade cakes and savoury snacks. Vegan cakes always available. If you have special dietary needs please contact us. I’m 100% sure we can make you happy.
Collections and donations
We will be collecting items for Reading Refugee Response Hub at the assembly so do bring along any unwanted items from home. The main things needed are: clothes in good condition (mostly aimed at teenage boys, and small/medium sized men), shoes in good condition (medium/small sizes best), underwear/socks (new only), toiletries (new only), useable tents, blankets.
The new venue provides much greater flexibility to accommodate families with small people. There is plenty of room inside and out to give breathing room to little people who do not care so much for the talky bits, without mum or dad having to leave the body of the event. Toys too.
