Sunday March 24, 11.00am – 12.15pm

You are invited to join us on Sunday 24th March for our monthly secular celebration of life, where we’ll be exploring the theme of public resistance to policies and decisions that we disagree with and the influence we can exert on the world around us.

Guest speakers from Extinction Rebellion and Draw The Line Comics will be sharing some fascinating insights into how individuals and communities can rise up to create a kinder and more aware society, by taking direct action through peaceful protest, civil disobedience and small acts of rebellion against the powers-that-be.

So this may be a slightly more animated assembly than usual – but we will endeavour not to be overtly political and will still be singing along to some brilliant pop songs, staying positive and building community over 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 at 11.00 in St Andrews Church, and rejoin in time for the last song at about 12.00. There is always a promise of food and a magic trick. Sometimes it happens


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.
