Sunday Assembly not anti-god

Those responsible for bringing the Sunday Assembly to New Zealand are keen to dispel any preconceived negative ideas people may have about their movement.

Just like any church service, there is singing, service sheets and meaningful readings. But unlike others, the Sunday Assembly is a godless congregation focussed on inspiring guest speakers.

“We don’t say we’re anti-God,” says Sunday Assembly organiser William Stewart. “We don’t say we’re anti-religion. We welcome anyone no matter what you believe. We’re just going to brush, slide past that topic.”

“I know quite a few people who recently transitioned from being religious to being agnostic,” he said. “I think no matter what you believe or whereabouts you are, we can provide something for you.”

Last Sunday about 30 people attended an assembly themed on urban renewal.
