Here are some details of our upcoming events between now and the next assembly:
Chat and Plan – Saturday 9th December, 11:30am @ Old Market Tavern
This month, we’ll be having our Chat and Plan at the Old Market Tavern (the same pub we visit each month after the assembly). Join us to discuss all things Sunday Assembly, get involved and help out with the running of Sunday Assembly Bristol (hint hint, we’d love more help!), or just listen and get a better idea of how everything works, and possibly a sneak preview of future assemblies!
Wonder More – Brave Poor Things – Saturday 9th December, 14:00 @ M-Shed
After the Chat and Plan this weekend, we’re going to feed our wonder neurons (which *definitely* might exist) with a trip to one of Bristol’s many museums, the alphabetically named M-Shed.
We’re going to see an exhibition about the rather Victorian-sounding ‘Guild of the Brave Poor Things’. We’ll learn about the history of Bristol’s disability rights movement, and how his fine city came to be home to what is believed to be the country’s first purposefully-built accessible building. If we have time we might also drop in on the main exhibition hall below with all of its many riches.
All are welcome, the exhibition is free (donations welcomed) and we’ll be heading for cake and a cuppa in a nearby café afterwards to discuss the exhibition and anything else under the Sun.
If you’re looking for a way to gain a familiar face or two before going to your first assembly, this is a good opportunity for that as we’re normally a fairly small group and are very welcoming of newcomers.
We’ll meet at 2pm in the entrance hall of the M-Shed. For the ambitious amongst you that are planning to come along to chat at the Chat and Plan earlier on the same day, at least one of us will be walking from the Old Market Tavern to the M-Shed at 1:30 pm.
If you’d like to get hold of us on the day, you can contact Richard on 07816 271989.
Anyone that’s particularly eager can look at the exhibition’s website here – https://www.bristolmuseums.
Yule Rock, Sunday 10th December, 10:45 @ Hydra Bookshop
This Sunday (10th) we will be having fun and games with our annual Yule Rock – a festive sing-along special, which will be at Hydra Bookshop on Old Market Street (it’s next to the Old Market Tavern, and just a few minutes walk from the Trinity Centre).
It will be a little different to our usual assemblies, with no main speaker. Instead, we’ll have a more laid-back event, with festive games, songs, crafts, and food – aiming for a lack of religiosity where possible (recognising this is more difficult than usual at Christmas time). The event will be especially child-friendly, with fun activities for children and adults alike!
We’d also love for you to show off your cooking and baking skills by bringing along any Christmas culinary delights you’d like people to enjoy. There’ll be a small prize for the baker who creates the most scrumptious Christmas treat, so get practicing!
And the next assembly we have is our January assembly, on the theme of ‘How to Win a Million Dollars’, where Sophie Stevens will be coming to talk to us about one of the Millennium Problems. It will be on Sunday 7th January at 11:00. The address is still the Trinity Centre, which can be found at Trinity Rd, Bristol BS2 0NW.
We’re always looking for volunteers, so if you’ve just learned a new song on an instrument or fancy reading something personal in front of a great friendly crowd, just reply to this email.
That’s everything for now, but if you have any ideas about what could make Sunday Assembly, FUNday Assembly, do get in touch.
