It’s the prime time to learn about number theory!

Maths is often seen as a bunch of rules to follow so to find the right answers. But often mathematicians make up new rules and explore new world that emerges from those rules. In our talk this month, Florian Bouyer is going to take us back to the basics and define addition again, but in two new unexpected ways. This introduction to number theory will lead us into the world of cryptography: how do you communicate with your bank on-line with the knowledge no one else can steal your information?

We also have our usual assortment of excitement (songs, readings, trying your best, tea and cake), so come along and join in the fun!

If you can turn up a little early (10:30-10:45ish), some special guests at our next assembly would like your help!

Researchers from Coventry University, in collaboration with the University of Oxford, are conducting research on the effects of taking part in Sunday Assemblies on members who attend. If you would like to take part in this research, please arrive 15-30 minutes before the assembly starts so that they have time to explain the study and conduct the pre-Assembly questionnaire.

If you like Facebook, check out the event here;
and if you like Meetup, check out the event here.

As always, we’ll be having our pub social after the assembly at the Old Market Tavern afterwards. Check out the Facebook event here and the Meetup event here.

So, just to summarise:

We’ll see you at about 10:45 for an 11:00 start at the Trinity Centre, or 10:30 if you want to take part in some exciting research! We’ve set up a chair for you already.

Hope to see you there!

Buckets of love,
Sunday Assembly Bristol

See you on Sunday, at 10:45

Thanks for sharing cake with us!

That’s right, we’re thanking you because every part of Sunday Assembly only works if we have people to share in it with us.

As discussed we’ve got loads of things happening between this Assembly and the next, but first, it’s probably worth pointing out the easiest place to follow us on the internet;

November Assembly – Let Them Eat Cake

November Assembly – Let Them Eat Cake
Sunday 4th November, 10:45 @ Trinity Centre

This Sunday, we’re going to be hearing about a subject very close to all of our hearts, and for many people, the entire reason they come to Sunday Assembly Bristol… That’s right, we finally have an assembly about CAKE! 

More specifically, we have Rachel Buchanan coming to talk to us about how cake is used in rituals, which promises to be fascinating, as well as our usual assortment of songs, a reading, and obviously lots of cake – hint hint: if you’d like to try your hand at baking, the more cake we have, the better 😉

If you like Facebook, check out the event here;
and if you like Meetup, check out the event here.

As always, we’ll be having a spot of lunch at the Old Market Tavern afterwards.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no parking at the Trinity Centre this month due to their fireworks display for bonfire night, but there is plenty of free parking on the streets nearby, including Old Market Street.

So, just to summarise:

We’ll see you at about 10:45 for an 11:00 start at the Trinity Centre. We’ve set up a chair for you already.

Hope to see you there!

Buckets of love,
Sunday Assembly Bristol

Awesome General Meeting (AGM) – Sunday 2nd September, 2pm @ Old Market Tavern
It’s that time of year again for our Awesome (Annual) General Meeting. Hopefully you can join us after the September assembly to have your say and vote on critical and exciting Sunday Assembly Bristol matters, including putting yourself forward for a position as one of our amazing organisers!

Details of the roles up for grabs, such as Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and more, can be found here. All of the roles are open to anyone – people can hold more than one role, or one role can be shared between multiple people – whatever works to keep Sunday Assembly Bristol as amazing as it is (or to make it even better)!

Two Assemblies THIS WEEKEND (and advance sight of AGM roles)!

August Assembly – Bee Positive

…ALSO AN ADVANCE LINK TO OUR ORGANISING ROLES FOR OUR AGM!

That’s right – this month, we’re going to be doing our August assembly not once, but twice! As well as our usual assembly on Sunday at the Trinity Centre, we’ll also be putting on an amazing show at Fieldview Festival on Saturday morning! 

If you like Facebook, check out the Fieldview event here, and the Trinity event here
If you like Meetup, check out the Fieldview event here, and the Trinity event here.

Don’t worry about missing out if you haven’t got tickets to Fieldview this year, as we’re repeating the same assembly for both events, so no one misses out on what promises to be a brilliant event. We have the fantastic Dr Clara Montgomery coming to talk to us about Beeing Positive (though probably not in the way you expect). We’ve also got a variety of bee themed puns, songs, and so much more lined up!

As always, after our assembly at the Trinity Centre on Sunday, we’ll be having a spot of lunch at the Old Market Tavern.

AGM
One final notice for you all – in addition to reminding you about our fantastic events coming up this weekend, we also wanted to let you know that we’ll be having our Awesome (annual) General Meeting in the Old Market Tavern after our September Assembly, where we discuss all things Sunday Assembly Bristol related and vote organisers into their various roles.

The awesome roles which we will be aiming to fill in September can be found here – we’re looking for as many people as possible to get involved, so if you’re interested in helping out Sunday Assembly Bristol by volunteering as one of our organisers (which we just know you are!) then just reply to this email letting us know, or asking any questions you have about becoming an organiser! We’d love to have you on board!

So, just to summarise:

We’ll see some of you on Saturday at 10:45 at Fieldview, and the rest on Sunday at 10:45 for an 11:00 start at the Trinity Centre!

Hope to see you there!
