It's summer! 

Which means it's much easier to get up in the morning, come to a Sunday Assembly, feel brilliant about the world and step into the rest of your Sunday with joy.

That and you'll be a little bit smarter because we'll have Richard Ashcroft, Professor of Bioethics in the School of Law at Queen Mary University of London, where he teaches medical law, bioethics, and human rights as our main speaker.

He's going to talk about "disruptive innovation", why some people are so keen on it and what it means for human imagination and human dignity. 
Put more simply, he will talk about why ethics matters in innovation and why it is hard to innovate ethically. He will argue that innovation should be tied to hopes for humanity, not simply schemes for "getting rich quick".

Richard has been teaching in medical schools and law schools in the UK for just over 20 years now, and has published widely in the fields of research ethics, ethical aspects of public health and health promotion, and issues in genetics. At the moment he's writing a book about utopias and biotechnology.


As well as this mind bending talk, we'll be singing our hearts out, hearing stories from members of the community, drinking a vat of tea/coffee and eating a heck of a lot of biscuits afterwards too.

BSL interpretation will be provided.

We can't wait to see you there and have fun celebrating life with you all! 

Sunday Assembly London is free to attend and runs entirely on donations. Please support us if you can to keep it free for those who can't.
