A look at secular and 'atheist churches'


WikiTribune has now published a story on secular and so-called atheist churches.

In 2013, UK comedians Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans formed a secular church called Sunday Assembly where people meet to sing songs, listen to guest speakers, celebrate life, and reflect on how they can improve their lives – all without any mention of God.

There are over 40 Sunday Assemblies worldwide with several thousand members. In an era of social media we are more connected than ever, but also one where, in the west, many people feel lonely (CBS) and increasingly identify as atheist (Vox). So will these people go to secular or atheist churches for a sense of community?
