This page will be updated regularly with details of upcoming events.

We also have a Facebook page, and a monthly e-mail list, as alternative ways of keeping up-to-date with WLHS activities.

Please do feel free to contact us on social media, or by email to contact@westlondon.humanist.org.uk, if you have any questions or concerns about any of our events.

For details of our past events, please visit our Meeting Reports page.

Upcoming events:

On the first Thursday of every month, we meet for an evening social at Crispins Wine Bar in Ealing.

On the third Thursday of every month, we have our main meeting at Ealing Quaker Meeting House, for which there is a £4 attendance fee (£3 for WLHS members) to cover venue hire costs. The upcoming programme for these meetings is given below:

Thursday 15th June 2017
Free Will: Illusion or defining mark of Humanity?
The existence of "Free Will" is usually taken for granted in discussions of things like moral choice, moral responsibility, and creativity. Indeed, some thinkers have held it up as a capability at the root of what makes us human. Yet on the other hand, many critics claim that science shows our capacity to make choices to be an illusion, a comforting story that we tell ourselves in defiance of the evidence.

Branch chairperson Roger Haines has made a 'retirement project' of studying the rights and wrongs of this debate, and here will give a presentation of his findings.

Autumn 2017
Andrew Copson, chief executive of the British Humanist Association, will be speaking to us later this year. This event was originally scheduled for our May 2017 meeting, but was unfortunately postponed. Exact date yet to be confirmed. Please watch this space.

If you have a Facebook account, please like and follow our page, it has an “Events” section which is updated regularly.

The advantage of having a Facebook account is that you can interact with fellow WLHS supporters/members, and the committee, by sharing links and commenting on things others have shared. Also, you can RSVP to events.

You can join our e-mail list to receive monthly (or rarely, a little more frequent than that) emails from the WLHS committee with details of the latest news and events.

If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please let us know by sending an email to contact@westlondon.humanist.org.uk.
