Dear Sunday Assemblers, a very happy new-ish year to you! We hope your holiday season was everything you hoped for, or even better. Last month we did not host an Assembly due to date issues around Christmas and New Year, and so we’re even keener than usual to come together to enjoy fascinating and inspirational talks, sing rousing songs, meet new people and old friends alike, and socialise with hot drinks and lovely cake!

Well, every Assembly needs a theme, and we’re playing cautious this month and going with THE UNIVERSE! So no biggie then…just the most mysterious and mind-blowing subject in, er, the universe. We’ll be having a presentation on Stargazing in Winter, and we’ll hear other musings and readings about our big home. We like to be interactive and you’ll have a chance to ask questions and chip in your thoughts. Whether all questions of a cosmological nature will be answered, we certainly aren’t promising! But what is guaranteed is a shared experience of wonder at the staggering size, complexity and variety we can find by simply observing as far into our universe as it’s possible to do. Fortunately, that is quite far…

So we’d love to welcome you on 28th January at the New Headingley Club, details given. Please come anytime from 10.30am for tea, coffee and banter, to be ready for an 11.00 start. Please bring an open mind, a dose of curiosity, a keenness to share your thoughts, a hearty singing voice, and a friend! Telescope optional 🙂
