Sunday 22 April    at   11.00 – 12.15 am
St Andrews Church – Waterloo Street, BN3 1AQ Hove*
Spring has sprung. The snow has gone. And now there’s a massive heatwave* about to hit the UK!

Join us at Sunday Assembly Brighton on 22nd April to celebrate sunny days, longer evenings and less clothes, as we explore this month’s theme of ‘Spring’ in our own distinctive style.

Our guest speaker for April is the inspirational Jo Wren, co-founder of the innovative GROW (Growing Wellbeing) project in Brighton, offering some fascinating insights into the positive impact of the great outdoors on our physical and mental health.

Plus our homegrown poet laureate Rosa and a healthy dollop of natural science, punctuated by some rowdy 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.

(* Not entirely true – but it could be a few degrees warmer)


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.
