Sunday Assembly

The Sunday Assembly is a secular group that celebrates life through music, ideas and community outreach. Each meeting has a theme, with songs, readings, and a TED-style talk - plus time to make friends and socialise over tea and cake. We also run regular meetups for a variety of social activities.
