It is with much sadness that the Sunday Assembly Perth team is announcing that Sunday Assembly Perth is disbanding. We would like to extend our thanks to everyone who has contributed to making Sunday Assembly Perth happen over the last couple of years, particularly the founder members. There have been many wonderful assemblies and the cafe meetup group was always full of vibrant conversation. However, we feel that we have now fallen below the critical mass needed to continue. We believe that although the interest is still there in the community, the logistics of a city as geographically extensive as Perth are problematic. Nevertheless, we hope that others will pick up the baton in the future.

    Hope to come next Sunday to check out to see if this is a model that could be used occasionally at All Saints Floreat UC to engage the Community who use the Church premises on a weekly basis, but do not wish for formal religion.

    As formal religion declines and Church properties get sold off, does the Sunday Assembly offer a model for sustaining the Community building dimension of such facilities. Also for osmosis/dialogue to happen between the religious and non-religious who both seek to build a better world by Living better, Helping often and Wondering More. What a great vision.

    Hi Richard,

    Apologies for not responding sooner, nor trying to track you down on Sunday. If you came, I hope you had a good time.

    Our approach has always been inclusive and focussing on the tenets of Living better, Helping often and Wondering more. It’s our hope that people along all points of the religious spectrum could come and enjoy our assemblies.

    Thanks,

    Ant

    May I suggest that the Perth Sunday Assembly also advertise on the Meet Up site, free as far as I know.
    This may boost numbers at meetings etc.
    I notice among many other groups Atheist and Humanist groups are advertising their events for Perth already, see participating groups here;
    http://www.meetup.com/find/?allMeetups=true&radius=5&userFreeform=Perth%2C+Australia&mcName=Where%3F&lat=-31.952194&lon=115.86139&sort=default
    If this link doesn’t work just google Meet Ups Perth Western Australia

    FYI Members.
    A member called salomey is a scammer, “I received a message from them, the usual I have inherited a lot of money and although I don’t know you I want to share it with you” I am sure you have all seen them before. I have reported same.

    Dear Sunday Assembly Member:

    Atheism and agnosticism are not the only rational philosophies to contemplate a natural universe. There is also pantheism (better termed cosmostheism). An essay on pantheism, Cosmos Theology, rationally answers fundamental religious concerns, such as:

    The natural meaning of ‘good’
    The natural meaning of ‘evil’
    The future unfolding of humanity in evolutionary cooperation
    The structure of a united world order in compliance with this Cosmic Path
    The entropic character of “progressive” trends in the Western world today
    The connection religion has to civilization
    The need for a lasting world government to be established as a religious institution.

    If your are a rational thinker you owe it to yourself to have knowledge of different points-of-view. For a more in-depth understanding of Cosmos Theology visit its Questions and Answers website: http://www.cosmostheologybook.com.

    Best regards,
    Wayne Macleod
