West London Humanists and Secularists

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

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

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

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


Monthly socials

On the first Thursday of every month from 7:30pm, join us for socialising and relaxed conversation about anything and everything at Crispins Wine Bar in Ealing.

This is mostly a quiet, sit-down affair perfect for discussions about the issues of the day.

Two or three committee members are regularly present. These socials are often a point-of-entry for people previously unfamiliar with the humanist community and/or with WLHS. We always look forward to welcoming such new attendees in particular, whatever their world view.


Main monthly meetings

On the third Thursday of every month except August, 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 February 2018
Countering religious apologetics
The presentation on countering religious apologetics this Thursday 15th Feb. (at the usual time of 7:15pm for 7:30pm) will be given by Dally, our Web Officer. His last one was a few years ago, and given that there are always new aspects to this issue arising, as well as the importance of constantly re-examining our own understanding of how to constructively engage with those offering opposing arguments, i.e. criticisms of secular humanism, Dally has kindly offered to give us a refresher. This will also be an opportunity to present, exchange, and appraise atheist and humanist resources, on which there has been a social media spotlight recently at Humanists UK in announcing their Massive Open Online Course on humanism. We look forward to seeing you there if possible.

As usual, this meeting will take place at the Ealing Quaker Meeting House on Woodville Road, Ealing, and as previously announced, it will be preceded by a brief business meeting to ratify the minutes of the 2016 AGM.


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 email list, please send us an email to request addition.
