Has anyone been to a Sunday Assembly. I found myself thinking how drawn i am to the idea of church. But I'm an atheist.

It turns out there is a local Sunday Assembly once a month.

Basically church without God. A secular gathering. Inspirational talks (maybe a bit like Ted talks I'm guessing) a bit of singing and tea and cake.

I tried playing a video clip and it really looked like the evangelical church of my childhood. Has me questioning. All looking a bit like there has been some drinking of kool-aid.

Any experience? I'm drawn to the feelgood factor.

I've been a few times. It was weirdly evangelical about loving each other and the planet. Not as nice atmosphere as church (and I'm also an atheist).

Glad others have been able to see what I was getting at. Thinking I should give them a go. Bit unconvinced by their children's service so will have to see how my DC fare.

Sounds a bit odd Jaxhog.

Despite the religious aspect I really like what I've read about the Unitarian church but sadly I don't think it works for children.
