Sunday Assembly Plans To Do A Good Deed On Sat. June 7th

See also

The Sunday Assembly movement was started in the U.K. in 2013 by two comedians, Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans. It has been described as "a church without the god bits." They now have over 40 local groups across the world, including a group in Portland Oregon. On June 7th, all of the groups, worldwide, are doing a day of service, called the "Day of Action." The local Portland group is also doing a volunteer event and is open to accept more helpers.

The Portland group will partner with OSALT (Oregon Sustainable Agriculture Land Trust) to continue work on the Greeley Forest Garden. The Greeley Forest Garden is "A Forest to Feed a Neighborhood" by recreating an edible forest habitat complete with fruit and nut trees, edible shrubs, and happy pollinators. Food will be enjoyed by park visitors, sold at market, and donated to charity. If you would like to join the volunteer effort, see this webpage for all details: .

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. Find us on the internet at , and on Facebook here: .
