Finally, please note that we will usually be running on the SECOND SUNDAY of each month from 2020 onwards, so you don't have to wait so long for your Sunday Assembly awesomeness (plus lots of other very, very good reasons). :)

We gather after the first song of the main Assembly at 11.00 in a next-door room, and rejoin in time for the last song at about 12.00. Full details at: https://sundayassemblybrighton.com/young-assembly/ Under-sevens are also welcome when accompanied by a carer and we are fully DBS-compliant.
Foodbank Feature... We will also be running our popular foodbank collection at the main entrance: making it super simple for you to donate any in-date, non-perishable food and toiletries that you can spare (ie. tins, packets, jars and bottles).

Science Philosophy Discussion April 8, 2020, Wednesday, 7:15/8pm-10pm. £4? CANCELLED. Brighton Cafe Scientifique - Red wine, chocolate, or...? The science of anti-ageing medicines. Hosted by Stolathetoga and Dave.
Location: Latest Music bar, 14-17 Manchester St, Brighton, BN2 1TF.
Quote: "Will red wine and chocolate really keep you healthy? The science behind the search for anti-ageing medicines, with Prof Lizzy Ostler on Wednesday 8th April - talk starts at 8:00pm.
There is growing evidence that many of the processes of ageing, such as heart disease, dementia and arthritis, could be prevented or remediated by simple chemical compounds. Over the last five years, researchers have shown that the removal or alteration of the behaviour of senescent cells has the potential to reduce multiple age-related pathologies. The development of orally-available broad-spectrum anti-degenerative medicines based on targeting senescent cells is now a realistic goal.
A wide variety of natural products, often isolated from 'super-foods' including grapes and cocoa beans, have long been identified as potential lead compounds for such anti-ageing therapeutics. However, many such compounds have multiple biological activities, and may be poorly absorbed. We designed and synthesised a library of variants of Resveratrol, and have been using this panel of Resveralogues to find out how they really work, and whether they can be turned into real life anti-ageing therapies. A subset of our compounds is able to 'rejuvenate' cultures of senescent cells. The implications of our findings for the design of future anti-degeneratives will be presented.
Lizzy Ostler is Head of Chemistry in the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences, University of Brighton. She took both her BSc in Chemistry and PhD in heterocyclic synthesis at Bristol University, before moving to Brighton to work on Catalytic Antibodies. There she was appointed lecturer in analytical chemistry and began to work closely with the ageing group. The application of analytical and synthetic chemistry tools to solve the problems of human ageing has been the focus of her research over the last 15 years, culminating in the award of a Professorial chair in 2018."

They also encourage members of a community to share their skills with others. They also encourage sustainability – by fixing things we can help reduce waste and the demand for new materials.

Quote: "This is an awe-inspiring circular walk of around 5 miles from Seaford over the golf course to Cuckmere Haven. As you come down into the Cuckmere valley you first see the meandering river. This then opens up to a vista of the coastguard cottages with the Seven Sisters behind - one the UK's most photographed views. We'll then come back on the coast path and walk back along Seaford seafront to the station. As usual, we will be learning a bit about the geography and history of the area along the way. It will be a great chance to get some fresh air and stretch your legs in some spectacular scenery, while chatting with other friendly people along the way.
NOTES:
1. There are two hills on this route - each about 250ft but they are fairly gradual - the slope down back into Seaford is steeper.
2. The path is generally dry but it can get a bit mucky in couple of places. Ideally wear some sturdy boots. If you wear trainers, they may get muddy!
3. No lunch is organised after this walk but feel free to arrange this ad-hoc on the day or post messages on this page.
4. Dogs are welcome on the walk on leads.
5. If the walk needs to be cancelled due to very poor weather, we'll let you know 24 hours before and this will also be posted on our Facebook page."

History Discussion/Interactive Walk/Hike May 24, 2020, Sunday, 1pm-3pm. £5. Guided-walks-in-BrightonandSussex: Spring Stroll - Clayton Village, Jill Windmill and a medieval church too. Hosted by Nick Richmond.
Quote: " What we'll do. Clayton is right on the doorstep of Brighton and has some secrets to share. This will be a walk from Hassocks to Clayton (1 mile) through Butchers Wood. In the village we will see the Clayton Tunnel, designed in 1841 and hear the story of the disaster that happened there in 1846 when two trains collided head on.
We will also visit the church of St John The Baptist which house medieval murals from the 12th Century. After a drink at The Jack and Jill pub we will go up to the Jill windmill itself which will have been recently repainted (Jack is privately owned), and hear about it's history and the windmills place in Sussex agriculture.
This will be a dog friendly walk for those that are up for walking longer distances than my usual tours. It will also be a longer trip timewise so leave the afternoon free and bring vittles with you too. We will meet at Hassocks train station front entrance (lots of parking there too) and come back to the same place at the end As always my tours are only £5 each and children go free. Look forward to seeing you there.
- What to bring Water, Sunscreen, Walking shoes, sandwiches and sunshine (if we all bring some with us there will be plenty)."

We will explore the tunnels beneath the Pavilion (and separate the truth from the myth), follow the course of the magnificent Brighton sewer system, find secret entrances and exits, smugglers caves, and railway disasters.

Recycling Bicycle Computers/Internet June 14, 2020, Sunday, 10am-12n. Prestonville Repair Cafe. Second Sunday of each month.
Quote: "It’s all too easy to throw away broken products, especially if an item is cheap to replace or it’s difficult to get advice about how to fix it. There are many benefits to extending the life of a product and not just in financial terms. Repair cafes are free meeting places where friends and neighbours can gather for a chat and a cuppa. They also encourage members of a community to share their skills with others. They also encourage sustainability – by fixing things we can help reduce waste and the demand for new materials. What we can fix depends on the availability of volunteers. If you want to ask about a particular item, please give us details via the website. If you would like to offer electrical carpentry, mechanical or any other useful skills please contact contact Pete Golton (petergolton@yahoo.co.uk).."

Quote: "This is a wilderness well-being walk, facilitated by ipse wilderness (www.ipsewilderness.co.uk). It is slighty different style to our usual walks. You will be invited to partner up with other walkers for short sections of the route, to reflect on aspects of your life. These discussions will be carefully facilitated, enabling deeper conversations and a greater sense of connection. No small talk here; come ready to share, listen and observe while you wonder and wander! This is a gentle-paced amble of 4 miles with a well-being focus, making use of the hidden wilderness spaces within the city. The route is gently undulating, firm underfoot, with expansive views over the city, out to sea and across the Downs. Along the walk there will be invitations to discuss aspects of well-being, using metaphors drawn from the landscape. Join us for a walking-talking well-being journey, where you are invited to connect with yourself, nature and others.
***VERY IMPORTANT*** This walk starts at the Gladstone pub on the Lewes Road but ends on Eastern Road in Kemptown. These are 1.5 miles apart (30 min walk) if you parked your car at the beginning! Note, both locations are well served with buses from the city centre. (Please contact the organiser if you want further clarification).
OTHER NOTES:
1. There are some gradual hills on this route.
