Animals (Veganuary special)

Animals (Veganuary special)

Sunday January 12th, 11am – 12.15pm

You are invited to join us on Sunday 12th January for our monthly celebration of life, where we’ll be exploring the wonderful world of animals to tie in with Veganuary…

Our guest speaker for the month is campaigner Dan Kidby from Animal Think Tank and Animal Rebellion, who’ll be posing some fascinating questions about why humans regard different animal lives as more/less important than each other, eg. pets vs farm animals vs wildlife. With excessive meat consumption widely accepted as a major contributor to climate change, we think this is a highly topical and thought-provoking subject and hope to provide plenty of new ideas and food-for-thought (no pun intended).

You can also get your monthly dose of singalong pop songs, top science and good old-fashioned community – plus lashings of free tea & cake immediately afterwards (if you remember to bring your keep-cup).

Finally, please note that we will usually be running on the SECOND SUNDAY of each month from 2020 onwards, so you don’t have to wait so long for your Sunday Assembly awesomeness (plus lots of other very, very good reasons). 🙂


Young Assembly is for 7+ children, with or without parents. We gather after the first song of the main Assembly at 11.00 in a next-door room, this time it’s a food fight – verbal only; sorry. Our stomachs will be arguing between what we like and what’s good for us … and what’s best for the planet. The snacks will be both vegan and tasty, the magic trick will be food-related. We rejoin in time for the last song at about 12.00.

Full details at:

Under-sevens are also welcome when accompanied by a carer and we are fully DBS-compliant.


We will also be running our popular foodbank collection 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).

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, previously at St Andrew’s in Hove – but NOW in our new home at Middle Street School in The Lanes, 37 Middle Street, Brighton BN1 1AL.

Please note that entry on Sunday is via the main school gates on Middle Street, which will be open from around 10am (NOT the weekday entrance to reception on Boyce’s Street).
