About this event:
Lincoln Humanists Inaugural Meeting will take place on Thursday 30 November from 7pm to 9pm in Witham House.
Throughout recorded history there have been non-religious people who have believed that this life is the only life we have, that the universe is a natural phenomenon with no supernatural side, and that we can live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. Today, people who share these beliefs and values are called humanists and they are represented in this country by Humanists UK, which now has about 65,000 members.
Humanists UK has affiliated groups in most major UK towns and cities, but there are currently no humanist groups in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, so this is our chance to help start one.
The idea for setting up Lincoln Humanists has come from a small band of humanists who work with the University of Lincoln chaplaincy team. As you may already know, Lincoln is one of the first university chaplaincies in the country to include humanists, as well as representatives of the major world religions.
The group’s inaugural meeting will take place on Thursday 30 November 2017 from 7pm to 9pm at the University of Lincoln Chaplaincy in Witham House. It is free and open to everyone, students, faculty and local people, whether you are already a member of Humanists UK or just interested in finding out more about humanism.
If you would like to attend or have any questions, then please email Doug Duckworth and Kate Harrison, humanist advisers at the University of Lincoln, and Bradley Allsop, postgraduate student, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
