Do atheists really want to go down the same route?

Perhaps 'disagreement' was too mild a term. The safety I see in various places of worship is the community spirit of 'mostly' likeminded folk, in an environment free from ridicule or abuse by others who do not share such beliefs.
An atheist meeting place would have a similar attraction for me with rational debate not being ruined by unsubstantiated scripture 'evidence' or silly damnation type statements about the horrors of not believing in any gods. A friendly environment where one would not feel any need to hide such lack of belief.
I wish you well and reciprocate the stay safe sentiments, but as I don't believe in any demons or other mystical bad guys, I'm quite sure I have much less to look out for in life.
Oh, that is unfortunate to hear, I assumed fellow worshippers looked after each other a bit more than the average Starbucks congregation.

So strange, IMO church buildings are no more safe than coffee shops.
Life is a tactical game and the religiously zealous can be extremely troublesome.
I think only cowards take special measures to avoid ridicule or abuse by others who do not share such beliefs.

Athiest Church - Oxymoron? lool
The Sunday Assembly promote themselves as 'a godless congregation that meets on the first Sunday of every month to hear great talks, sing songs and generally celebrate life.' Such an assembly is not a religion, no matter how much you may wish it to be perceived as so.

It appears atheists are "under-served" by most mainstream religions and one that focuses on those who simply do not believe could really corner the market on that segment of the population.
A mildly amusing attempt at humour, it is however unlikely that your business model will achieve the same level of initial success that the atheist assembly is presently enjoying.
The trick really is to simply look for those who are under-served or even totally ignored and serve them, that is why I am so confident that my new chain of tanning salons for albinos will be an unbridled success.
