In the second episode of The Sacred, Elizabeth Oldfield talks to comedian, writer and co–founder of the Sunday Assembly, Pippa Evans. Pippa is a regular on BBC radio 4 and has written and presented series for other broadcasters and networks.

The Sunday Assembly was dubbed the “atheist church” on its inception. The organisation has grown to become a global movement for people who value faith and spirituality, in spite of not identifying as ‘religious’.

This episode also features an interview with Theos researcher Simon Perfect, on his research about free speech and university campuses.

The Sacred is produced by Hussein Kesvani and No Country media.
