You are not obligated to sign a new contract if you don't want to.  And the landlord is entitled to serve notice on you if he/she wants to.

Serving it on a Sunday may have been in order to ensure it's arrival first thing tomorrow morning, in order to comply with the number of months needed to serve on you to end the actual tenancy agreement by the end date.

So whilst you consider it unprofessional, it may well have been done for a specific purpose.  Lots of people work on Sundays.

It's a shame that you have been upset by this, but unfortunately it is the nature of private renting that a landlord can serve notice on you.
