The Sunday Assembly was started by Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans, two comedians who were on the way to a gig when they discovered they both wanted to do something that was like church but totally secular and inclusive of all—no matter what they believed.
The first ever Sunday Assembly meeting took place on January 6th 2013. Almost 200 people turned up at the first meeting, 300 at the second and soon people all over the world asked to start one.
Now there are over 70 Sunday Assembly chapters in 8 different countries where people sing songs, hear inspiring talks, and create community together.
Why do they exist? Life is short, it is brilliant, it is sometimes tough, they build communities that help everyone live life as fully as possible.
