Sunday Assembly Reading - April 2019
Time & Location
About The Event
I don’t know about you, but for me as a kid, Easter was about Easter Eggs. It was breaking the thick chocolate shell and hoping there was a gift inside. As a parent, Easter was hiding mini chocolate eggs, each of us taking turns to be the hider and shouting “HOTTER, HOTTER, COLDER!” to the searchers as they frantically scoured the garden for glints of silver wrapping in the bushes and trees.
This month we welcome Fiona Lahive from Cocoa Research UK at Reading University, who will talk about the humble bean that has had such a profound impact on our culture.
As always there will be silly games, sharing, socialising, and singing along with The Word of Bob: Sweet Child Of Mine, Sweet Dreams, How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You and Sweet Caroline.
After the Assembly, we will either go for a picnic or to Brewdog depending on the weather.
** About Sunday Assembly **
Sunday Assembly Reading is free to attend and runs entirely on donations.
The Sunday Assembly Reading is a secular congregation that celebrates life, meeting once a month at The Reading Irish Centre. Members of the Assembly believe in Living Better, Helping Often and Wondering More, for no other reason than to make the most of the one life we know we have. The morning is a lively combination of group singing, silly games, interesting words, and eating cakes, in the company of a lovely diverse bunch of people.
The Sunday Assembly welcomes all - of all ages and of all backgrounds.
The best way to meet new people is to come early and enjoy some tea, coffee, homemade cakes and savouries (vegan-friendly).
We can always do with a few extra help, so if you want to really feel part of our community, offer a hand or two. Either contact us now or arrive a bit earlier on the day and we'll find you something fun to do.
