Departures

Sunday November 24, 11am – 12.15

You are invited to join us for our monthly celebration of life – about death (and getting ready for it)…

After the popularity of our previous outing into this area (two years ago), we’ll be revisiting the end of life through a thoughtful and generally upbeat combo of fascinating speakers, poetry, pop songs and a lovely dose of togetherness.

Our guest speakers for November are the two Kates from the brilliant Coffin Club, who’ve been plotting a funeral revolution by creating safe spaces to talk about death and helping people to take creative control of their final send-off. We also have some fascinating perspectives on how we leave this world from our resident poet Rosa and Nikkan Woodhouse from Dignity in Dying, so there’ll be plenty of food for thought and discussion.

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

Entry is completely FREE with a full refund if you don’t feel differently about death by the time you depart (the assembly, not this mortal coil).

* IF you bring your keep-cup. 🙂

YOUNG ASSEMBLY

If you think your kids are too young to stay engaged with this more adult theme, never fear… 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, and rejoin in time for the last song at about 12.00.

Full details at: https://sundayassemblybrighton.com/young-assembly/

FOODBANK FEATURE

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).
