Starting from 3rd June 2009 our monthly social meetings are now held at a new location, the Somers Town Coffeehouse, which is located almost directly between Kings Cross and Euston stations. We think we have found a very special venue to host our socials and we hope you agree!
The Central London humanist group will mark its fifth anniversary later this year. In the wake of the phenomenally successful humanist bus campaign, and thanks to the efforts of various individuals as well as the power of internet networking, the group is thriving.
On the 18th February 2009 the Central London Humanist Group and 21st Century Network, kindly hosted by EnlightenNext, held a joint event entitled Humanising Beliefs.
Beliefs can be often intolerant and can lead to conflict that is often violent. History is full of both religious and secular extremism – religious war as well as secular terror such as in the French Revolution.
There was quite a buzz at November's social when a reporter from the Metro newspaper came along to find out what humanists get up to in their spare time. Apparently she was rather impressed with the friendly atmosphere and varied demographic of the group. This great exposure has led to quite a lot of new members signing up, who we hope to see at some of our events soon!
