The Sunday Assembly Bristol

A godless congregation meeting first Sunday of every month - motto: live better, help often, wonder more

"Sunday Assembly Bristol 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 hold assemblies on the first Sunday of the month from 11 am -12 pm in the Trinity Centre.
We are totally inclusive and welcome 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.

The Sunday Assembly

  1. Is 100% celebration of life. We are born from nothing and go to nothing. Let’s enjoy it together.

  2. Has no doctrine. We have no set texts so we can make use of wisdom from all sources.

  3. Has no deity. We don’t do supernatural but we also won’t tell you you’re wrong if you do.

  4. Is radically inclusive. Everyone is welcome, regardless of their beliefs – this is a place of love that is open and accepting.

  5. Is free to attend, not-for-profit and volunteer run. We ask for donations to cover our costs and support our community work.

  6. Has a community mission. Through our Action Heroes (you!), we will be a force for good.

  7. Is independent. We do not accept sponsorship or promote outside businesses, organisations or services

  8. Is here to stay. With your involvement, The Sunday Assembly will make the world a better place

  9. We won’t tell you how to live, but will try to help you do it as well as you can

  10. And remember point 1… The Sunday Assembly is a celebration of the one life we know we have


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. A Sunday Assembly service consists of songs (usually pop) sung by the congregation, a reading, an interesting talk from scientists, charities, or anyone with an interesting story, a moment of reflection games, and an address which gives a take home message. Afterwards we have tea and cake and a chat.

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.

Outside of the event we organise small groups (Smoups), and other social activities such as Wonder More (science) clubs, music groups, peer-to-peer support and local volunteering.

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

Future meetings: Sunday 4th January 2015
