In this blog you'll find details of our past events, as well as other information about what Plymouth Humanists get up to

Keeping Money Local – the City of Plymouth Credit Union

Our last talk of 2017 was from Paul Williams of the City of Plymouth Credit Union.

Book Club - Mortality

November's book club was a popular one – eight people in all attended, no doubt because Christopher Hitches is such a popular author among atheists and Humanists.  We chose ‘Mortality’ partly because it's one of Hitchin’s shorter books, and also because its subject is (understandably) a little different from his standard fare.  As always, we had an enjoyable and wide ranging discussion – and one that didn’t stray too far from the book!

Joint Social with Cornwall Humanists

Our second joint meeting of 2017 with Cornwall Humanists on 5th November was another success.  We were joined by a member of Exeter Humanists too, and had an enjoyable couple of hours discussing subjects of mutual interests, as well as some general socialising.

Talk to Plymouth Unitarians  

We rarely get asked to speak about Humanism, so we were pleased to receive an invitation from Plymouth’s Unitarian Church for a short talk as part of their November lunchtime reflective meeting.  Unitarianism is a very tolerant and open-minded approach to faith, and It was interesting to explore what humanists and Unitarians have in common, as well as our differences.

Percy Bysshe Shelley: A Humanist Out of Time

We were delighted in October to be able to provide a speaker for the 2017 Plymouth Literary Festival. John Webster, a committee member of Oxford Humanists, gave a talk entitled “Percy Bysshe Shelley: A Humanist Out of Time”.
