    Sunday Assembly – Empathy

    10:30 - 12:30Reading Irish Centre

    96-104 Chatham Street, Reading RG1 7HT

    If we could walk in some else’s shoes would we forgive them for who they are and what they have done? Should we encourage more empathy or does empathy have limits?

    This month we welcome Margot Ravenscroft of Amicus, a UK charity that helps provide representation for those facing the death penalty in the United States. It will be a tale of the individuals and the impact they have in this difficult area.

    As always there will be silly games, sharing, socialising and singing along with The Word of Bob. After the Assembly, we will either go for a picnic or to Brewdog depending on the weather.

    Getting to Sunday Assembly: There is free parking on Sundays on the streets north of the Irish Centre. Try Weldale, North and Great Knollys Streets but get there early. There is a footpath that leads from Weldale Street to Chatham Street and then the Irish Centre will be on your right.

    Sunday Assembly Reading is free to attend and runs entirely on donations. The Assembly is a secular congregation that celebrates life, meeting once a month at The Reading Irish Centre and welcomes all ages and all backgrounds.
