CELEBRATING THE ONE LIFE WE KNOW WE HAVE. TOGETHER.

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 we exist? Life is short, it is brilliant, it is sometimes tough. We build communities that help everyone live life as fully as possible.

LIVE BETTER

We have social events each month that are just for fun - might be a game or movie night at a member’s house, trivia at a local pub, misadventures in karaoke, our annual Festivus Party, a summer cookout by the water...the common elements are people and fun!

Good words. Good People.

  • “On my 3rd day in Olympia--after moving from Alaska for a job here--I happened upon an organizational meeting for Sunday Assembly on Meetup. I wasn’t able to make the first meeting, and I have missed more than I’d like, but I feel like I have ‘found my people.’  It has been so affirming to meet and spend time with others who have deconverted, never believed, or question the existence of God.  All of these people are wonderful and welcomed into what is not only described as a community of radical inclusion, but truly is.”

    Laurie T.
  • "SAO is a place where I can simply be myself and be surrounded by kind, caring, like-minded people. I really value this community for all it does and for the sense of support it provides to everyone of us."

    Steve H.
  • “I am so happy to have found a community where I can help make a difference, have a great time, and completely be myself.  I have found friendships that I know will last a lifetime.  Cheers to all of my fellow Assemblers. It’s been a blast!”

    Pam S.
  • “Sunday Assembly is the first community of people I've found who have thought seriously and carefully about theism - and come to the same conclusion I have. It is a place I can relax and know it's OK to believe what I believe.”

    Jeff P.
  • “Sunday Assembly is all about the people! No matter what we're doing, it's more fun because we're doing it together, just being ourselves. Together, we are creative, intelligent, funny, caring, conscientious, honest, and fun.”

    Marty M.
  • "Sunday Assembly has really enriched my life over the past year. The highlights for me have been new friendships, a growing sense of community, game nights and happy hours, fascinating conversations with freethinkers, and laughs...lots and lots of laughs."

    Candice H.
  • "Sunday Assembly is a place for me to learn from and dialogue with free thinking, open-minded people of all ages who are inspired by the Wonder all around us and are not dogmatic. I hope to form enduring lifelong friendships with many in the Assembly and to embark together on this adventure!"

    Sue C.
  • "To me, Sunday Assembly means having a community and being around friendly people."

    Greg H.
  • “I enjoy the presentations at the Sunday meetings. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. The Wonder Club is a great opportunity to get to know each other better and explore various topics.”

    Pat C.
  • "Olympia’s Sunday Assembly asks each of us to inquire and appreciate more. By doing so, I find that I am constantly rediscovering my love for my community, my planet, and the universe I live in. There are few experiences more fulfilling than collective celebration, and there are few people I know who are more aware of the need for this collective celebration than the participants and organizers of Olympia's Sunday Assembly."

    Marco R.
