Sunday Assembly Pittsburgh is a secular community of folks who come together to celebrate life, and who strive to Live Better, Help Often, and Wonder More! Want to read our Charter?
The first Sunday Assembly was started in the United Kingdom by Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans. While traveling together, they discovered that they both wanted to do something that was like church, but totally secular and inclusive of all—no matter what they believed. The first ever Sunday Assembly meeting took place on January 6th 2013 in Islington, England.
A year later, Sunday Assembly Pittsburgh was organized by a group of Pittsburghers who wanted to build a thriving community among secular people. The first SAPgh Assembly was held in 2014 on the North Side, and included a morning filled with singing, dancing, and thought provoking conversation. Since then, Sunday Assembly Pittsburgh has built and maintained a community with core values that include compassion, science, reason, and inclusivity. Sunday Assembly’s motto is: Live Better, Help Often and Wonder More. The community mission is: through our Action Heroes (you!), we will be a force for good.
Through our Action Heroes (members like you!), we will be a force for good.
To help everyone live life as fully as possible.
We aim to provide inspiring, thought-provoking and practical ideas that help people to live the lives they want to lead and be the people they want to be.
Assemblies are communities of action building lives of purpose, encouraging us all to help anyone who needs it to support each other.
Hearing talks, singing as one, listening to readings and even playing games helps us to connect with each other and the awesome world we live in.
Sunday Assembly Pittsburgh is run by a group of incredible humans, who make up our Board of Directors. Together, they make sure our chapter remains true to our values, mission, vision, and motto. Learn more about our Board here!
