Sunday December 16, 11.00am – 12.15pm

Join us on 16th December (one week earlier than usual) for a life-affirming antidote to the crazy consumerism of December.

Our theme for this month is ‘Money’, where we’ll be exploring our relationship with material wealth through a slightly-but-not-too-festive mix of guest speakers, personal insights and singalong pop songs. Our lead speaker is Tom Nixon, who’ll be helping us think about our relationship with money – complemented by a healthy dose of science and other insights.

There’ll be lots of time to chat and be merry immediately afterwards, fuelled by free tea & cake and possibly even some special seasonal treats (if you’ve been good). And we’ll be heading to The Paris House afterwards for further festivities (see

Entry is completely FREE and everybody is welcome: from Xmas fanatics to surly humbuggers.

Plus if you’ve got any little people who might get restless during all the talking, we even have our special Young Assembly at the same time…


Young Assembly, for 7+ kids, will play games, activities, snacks and tricks to make healthy, wealthy* and wise. We will take a close-up look at money – literally: with microscopes, to spot the hidden details that make coins and notes hard to forge; we’ll discuss pocket money and the whys, the hows and whens to save; and we’ll have a chat about sharing while we distribute golden coins, filled with chocolate. Also some money magic (not how to make it disappear; anyone can do that)

Full details at:


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).


(*management cannot accept responsibility for any lack of wealthiness resulting from these games)


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.
