February 2017: Life

 

Our monthly Sunday Assembly with the theme of ‘Life’ and hosted by Rob.

 

Rob will be focusing on two aspects of his theme, what is life?and how do we make the most of it? while, as always, relating the talk back to the Sunday Assembly motto of live better, help often and wonder more.

We’ll have interesting talks, karaoke, music from The Assembly Line, the resident band, fun and (of course) lots of cake!

So, please join us on Sunday 26th February 2017 for another fun-packed event with great songs, great talks, great company and the ever-present great cake!

We meet in the back function room of The New Headingley Club. (56 St Michael’s Rd, Leeds LS6 3BG)

Doors open at 10.30am for socialising and drinks, and the Assembly starts at 11.00am.

We look forward to welcoming you!

She also showed an eye-opening video from the perspective of someone suffering from dementia to illustrate some of the difficulties that sufferers face, and some of the ways in which we can help.
