Sunday Assembly is a church-style meeting designed for atheists/agnostics/freethinkers. Their motto is "Live better. Help often. Wonder More." They started in the UK in 2013 and have since seen local assemblies spring up in cities all over the world.
Hillsong Australia, the Sydney based church best known for its widely popular praise and worship music, which is sung in churches all over the English speaking world, started not one but four new campuses in Melbourne this year. I've been meaning to pop down and check them out for a while, so this morning I drove my car to a bit north of the city and ran the final 3 kilometres to their (main) meeting in downtown (called the CBD in Australia).
I found this church via a google search for "King James Only churches, Melbourne, VIC, Australia". They were the second result. I was simply trolling the internet a bit bored. I grew up in an Independent Fundamentalist Baptist church in the U.S., and while they are relatively widespread in the U.S., I was curious if the phenomenon existed here in my new home down under.
A delicious spiritual community of artists. I went to check out one of Solace' two regular weekly meetings this morning--"Sunday Stuff". It was such a deliciously relaxed atmosphere. More like hanging out with people in a cafe or coffee house than "church" in the more popular sense. They also do a vegetarian, gluten free meal followed by spiritual practices on Tuesday evenings, called "Tuesday Stuff". There were ~10 adults and a handful of children and teens.
