About

The Story So Far

The Sunday Assembly is a godless congregation that celebrates life.

Our motto: live better, help often, wonder more.

Our mission: to help everyone find and fulfill their full potential.

Our vision: a godless congregation in every town, city and village that wants one.

We are here for everyone who wants to:

  • Live Better. We aim to provide inspiring, thought-provoking and practical ideas that help people to live the lives they want to lead and be the people they want to 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 even playing games helps us to connect with each other and the awesome world we live in.

It was started in England in January 2013 by two British comedians, Pippa Evans and Sanderson Jones.

Watch the below video to get a short introduction.

Sunday Assembly Brisbane

Launched in November 2013 and runs monthly events. We get about 75 – 125 people per event. Visitors, guests and children are all welcome.

What should you expect from a Sunday Assembly event?

Just by being with us you should be energised, vitalised, restored, repaired, refreshed and recharged. No matter what the subject of the Assembly, it will solace worries, provoke kindness and inject a touch of transcendence into the everyday.

But life can be tough… It is. Sometimes bad things happen to good people, we have moments of weakness or life just isn’t fair. We want The Sunday Assembly to be a house of love and compassion, where, no matter what your situation, you are welcomed, accepted and loved.

Most of all, have fun, be nice and join in.
