Sunday Assembly is a global network of congregations started by two British comedians (Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans) who envisioned a church-like organization friendly to believers and nonbelievers alike. The Sunday Assembly movement has since spread across the U.K. and Australia, and to many major cities in the United States. Learn more at www.sundayassembly.com.

Sunday Assembly Portland, founded in 2014, offers the communal music and fun of a church gathering, but with the deliberate absence of any religious or supernatural content. Citing a strategy of “radical inclusion”, the group seeks to build community that is friendly to all, including those whose lack of religious belief may cause them to feel alienated in a typical church setting.
