Horsham Humanists


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.




Typical agenda:

  • Business from 7.45pm to 8pm
  • Introductions
  • Local activities
  • Local and national news
  • Issue for debate/speaker/other event

Horsham Humanists meeting 2nd February 2011

Members were encouraged to advertise the important Census 2011 campaign in as many ways as possible. As March approaches, publicity will be stepped up across the UK. The meeting was informed that Naomi Phillips of the BHA will be giving a talk to Chichester Humanists at 7pm on Wednesday 23rd February at Chichester University. All members were invited to attend.

Members were invited to attend the next meeting of Horsham InterFaith where Andrew Edmondson will be giving a second talk on Humanism. This will be an opportunity to introduce Horsham Humanists to this liberal-minded InterFaith group.

A friend of mine went to the Humanists meeting and it was interesting.
