Restore22: The Sunday Assembly with Sanderson Jones

A bit like church - create meaningful connections in this totally secular environment, inclusive of all – no matter your beliefs.

Sunday Assembly was created by Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans, two comedians who were on their way to a gig in Bath when they discovered they both wanted to do something that was a little like church but totally secular and inclusive of all – no matter what they believed. 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. The goal is for each and every member of the community to feel welcome and valued, and to live their lives to the fullest.

Live Better: Providing inspiring, thought-provoking and practical ideas that help people to live the lives they want to lead and be the best people they can 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 playing games to help us to connect with each other and the awesome world we live in.
