Scores assemble at atheist 'church'


More than 200 people have packed into what is claimed to be the first atheist "church" in Britain.

The gathering, called the Sunday Assembly, is held in a former church in Islington, north London.

Members of a Christian church next door said they had no problem with their new neighbours.

Gareth Furby spoke to Sanderson Jones, who leads the Sunday Assembly, and Bishop Harrison Onyekwere, from the Bible Church of God's Praise.
