London Spy: The First Atheist Church

Five Headlines.

The Daily Constitutional's Round Up Of London In The News.

London is home to the U.K’s first atheist church. The Nave in St Paul’s Road, Canonbury – a deconsecrated Church – opened its doors for its first Sunday Assembly meeting on the 6th January.

The church is the brainchild of stand-up comedians Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans.

“We thought it would be a shame not to enjoy the good stuff about religion, like the sense of community, just because of a theological disagreement,” said Jones.

The church has provoked angry reaction from Christians and atheists alike, which led Mr Jones to Tweet: “The sign that Sunday Assembly is a good idea? I’m getting criticism from atheists and the religious.”

Catch up with the tale of Britain’s First Atheist Church in the Islington Gazette and the Huffington Post.
