If you’d like to do more to make Sunday Assembly Bristol even better, then there are lots of ways to help, and the commitment does not need to be large. Here’s some of the things you could do:
- Help out at assemblies
From greeting people at the start, baking cakes and mingling at the end, to hosting, doing a reading or speaking about your own experiences; there are many roles to get involved with on the day of the assembly. The best person to talk to in order to get more info is our chair.
- Singing or playing an instrument
Our band and singers are going from strength to strength. Some people do most assemblies, others drop in to help out now and then. Either way works for us. We’d love to see you at a sing-along or band practice. Please contact our musical coordinator.
- Making a donation
It sounds like a rather simple way to help, but our local group survives on donations. We make just enough to cover expenses, currently. Anything further would allow us to increase publicity and also to book the Trinity Centre for longer making it a more relaxed experience for all. Please contact our treasurer for ways to donate.
- Running a small group
Do you want to start a reading group, or gardening meet-up, or a “let’s learn about how to read scientific papers” group? We suggest the best way to start a group like this is just to run it for 2-3 sessions and see how it goes! We’ve done these things many times, so get in contact with our chair and we’ll support your idea as best we can 🙂
- Sharing your hobbies
Ever had an interest that you think other people would love? Our monthly Try Something New sessions are all about sharing those hobbies and appreciations with one another. So far we’ve tried salsa dancing, acting and geocaching, among others! If you’d like to suggest something for us to dabble in, get in touch with Mark.
- Skill Swap
A new project we’re working on – we’re looking to arrange a way to easily organise workshops for our lovely members to share their skills. This could be a short beginners guide to something (like how to play a simple tune on an instrument), a talk on a subject you’re knowledgeable about, or maybe just being on hand to give advice while others have a go (maybe a cycle maintenance workshop). Not finalised the organisation yet, but we welcome help and ideas – probably easiest to join our Facebook group for now where we will organise and share any dates for the first events (dates should also be on the website diary)
