Little Things

Little Things

Sunday July 28th.  11.00am – 12.15 pm

at Middle Street School, 37 Middle Street, Brighton BN1 1AL.

You are invited to join us on Sunday 28th July for our monthly secular celebration of life, where we’ll be exploring the importance of little things: from small words to tiny creatures.

Our guest speaker for July is our very own Professor of Linguistics Lynne Murphy, local academic and acclaimed author of ‘The Prodigal Tongue’, complemented by some awesome science, sublime poetry, rowdy singalong pop songs and not-little-but-huge 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…


Young Assembly is for 7+ children, with or without parents. We gather after the first song of the main Assembly, move into the next room for related activities and talk, and rejoin in time for the last song at about 12.00. There is food and a magic trick.

For younger children, there will be toys in the corner of the Young Assembly room, but you will have to supervise them.

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).



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 Church (on Waterloo Street in Hove) but now in the main hall at Middle Street School, 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).
