The Sunday Assembly is a secular congregation that meets on the first Sunday of every month to hear philosophical talks, sing songs and generally celebrate the wonder of life. It's a service for anyone who wants to live better, help often and wonder more. It was started by Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans. Assembly convenor Kathryn Murray states: "Especially within atheism, I think there's a bit of a stigma that's gotten attached to it that you have to be angry and outraged and anti-religion to be an atheist and it's just not true. There are heaps of people who don't believe and just want to be good people and part of a community".
Sunday Assembly Everywhere
Starting in May 2013, people will be able to start their own assemblies, under the banner Sunday Assembly Everywhere. The rules for doing so are in the Public Charter and Accreditation Model. The Assembly launched in the United States and Australia in September 2013.
