Tails of The Unexpected

Tails of The Unexpected

Sunday 24 September    at   11.00 – 12.15 am
St Andrews Church – Waterloo Street, BN3 1AQ Hove*
Incredible things can pop up in the most unlikely places – and being surprised can be a strangely life-affirming experience.

Which is why our September assembly will be exploring the mysterious realm of The Unexpected – via our sometimes chaotic combination of brilliant speakers, magical science stuff, singalong pop songs and a welcome moment of contemplation.Our guest speaker for this month will be Rachel Bicker, Biodiversity Consultant at Gatwick Airport, who will be sharing some fascinating insights into the huge variety of wildlife to be found around one of the UK’s busiest airports – and explaining how nature has managed to flourish in such an unlikely environment.

As always, there will be generous portions of tea, cake and friendly chit-chat immediately afterwards – so you can take time to make some unexpected new friends and/or catch up with old ones.

Entry is completely FREE with a full refund if you’re not surprised by something you learn while you’re with us.

We hope to see you there!


After a brief summer recess, our regular foodbank collection will be back in action at the main entrance: making it super simple for you to donate any in-date, non-perishable food and toiletries that you can spare (ie. tins, packets, jars and bottles).

We’ve had lots of generous donations at recent assemblies, so please keep them coming.



The Sunday Assembly is a worldwide network of non-religious gatherings which aims to uplift and inspire through readings, talks, silent contemplation and classic pop songs.


Sunday Assembly Brighton takes place on the fourth Sunday of every month at the beautiful St Andrew’s Venue on Waterloo Street, Hove, BN3 1AQ (see Important Note below).

*Please be aware that although the address above is correct, the map shown by Google Maps can sometimes be wrong… it is definitely at the seafront end of Waterloo Street in Hove, opposite the Southern Belle pub (previously the Iron Duke). There are two St Andrew’s in Hove so please don’t end up in the other one, which sometimes gets picked up by Google Maps by mistake and is still a normal church. Ours should be listed as St Andrew’s Venue.
