Horsham Humanists is a local branch of West Sussex Humanists and represents the interests of the non-religious residents in and around Horsham.

Each month we discuss issues concerning religion and belief, ethics, equality, human rights and science, including current events.

We liase with Horsham District Council on matters concerning equality of religion and belief, and monitor Council activities, including proposals for new "faith" schools.

We are keen to campaign on behalf of non-religious residents who feel disadvantaged because of their beliefs, e.g. access to a community school, discrimination at work or through the delivery of local services.

We organise events, manage stalls and displays, invite prominent speakers, and give talks to local organisations, including schools and colleges.

We meet once a month, upstairs in the Anchor Hotel, 3 Market Square,Horsham, RH12 1EU (tel: 01403 250 640).

Meetings are from 8pm on the second Monday of the month. There is a £3 entrance charge for each meeting (£2 for BHA members). Annual membership is also available.

If you would like to meet some local freethinkers and have a chat, please come along and join us at the next meeting.

Horsham Humanists meeting 5th January 2011

Several of the members produced a draft constitution. We discussed this in detail and then agreed a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. In future, formal business will take place before the main meeting.

Meetings will include discussions on one or more topics chosen by members, current news, and invited speakers. February's meeting will consider the Census 2011 campaign.

The new Horsham Humanists website should be up and running in February. We have also applied for registration with the BHA.
