Sunday Assembly, Britain’s atheist church, is a gathering for the non-believers and it’s making its way to Australia.
Nearly three dozen gatherings nicknamed “atheist mega-churches” by supporters and detractors have sprung up around the US and Australia – with more to come – after finding success in Great Britain at the beginning of the year.
And the movement, fueled by social media and led by prominent British comedians Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans, is no joke.
“The Sunday Assembly has been called the atheist church, but we prefer to think of it as all the best bits of church but with no religion and awesome songs,” Jones toldABC.
“Our motto is “live better, help often and wonder more”, and our mission is to help everyone live this one life as fully as possible.
Can’t say I see the point myself, but each to their own.Tags: atheism
