The Sunday Alternative - Celebrating Neurodiversity

This month we interview one of our community members as a neurodivergent person


This month we interview one of our community members as a neurodivergent person.

Foremost The Sunday Alternative is a community. The Assembly is merely the place where that meets. It’s a focus point – the excuse to be together. The assembly is not a show, it is closer to a party where we all can contribute from its centre.

It’s great to have external expertise to speak but there is also enormous value in sharing experiences around a table as a community.   

About The Sunday Alternative

If you're looking for a good time, look no further than The Sunday Alternative! We're a bunch of secular legends who meet monthly in Reading to celebrate life.

We're about Living Better, Helping Often, and Wondering More, and we do it for one reason only - to make the most of this one life we've got. We're a diverse bunch of characters, so you're bound to meet some cracking new mates.

Our mornings are chock-a-block with singing, games, interesting chats, and scoffing cake. Plus, it's inclusive - we welcome anyone, regardless of age or background. It won't cost you a penny, if pennies are hard to come by, as we run entirely on donations.

If you're feeling peckish, we've got that covered too. Come early - the best way to meet new people - grab a cuppa, and tuck into some homemade vegan-friendly treats. 

Doors open at 10:30 am for teas and chats. The Assembly begins at 11 am and ends at about 12:15 pm. Then more coffee and cakes until 1 pm. After we find a pub or a picnic in the park if the weather is kind.
