Sunday 22 July   at   11.00 am – 12.15 pm

Join us on 22nd July for a muscular assembly on the theme of ‘Strength’, exploring essential life skills such as resilience and empowerment through our trademark formula of thought-provoking speakers, hard-hitting science and riotous rock songs.

Our guest speaker for July is Diablo from the Brighton Rockers, our brilliant local Roller Derby team. Diablo will be sharing some unique insights into the positive impact that this thrilling sport has had on her life (and body image) since arriving in Brighton three years ago.

Roller Derby is a fast-paced full-contact sport on roller skates, played mostly by women. The sport is slightly dangerous – with regular bruises, falls and injuries – but also very exciting and loads of fun, empowering and building community amongst women of all body shapes, sizes and backgrounds.

You can also expect a healthy dose of vaguely-related science, touching personal stories, rowdy singalong pop songs, a moment of contemplation and generous helpings of free tea & cake immediately afterwards.

Entry is completely FREE and if you’ve got any little people who might get restless during all the talking, watch this space for details of our co-located Young Assembly.


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 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 Gogle 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.
