Following the success of the course we held in 2016, we are repeating it in Telford this year. The course consists of 6 sessions, each lasting 2 hours (7 – 9 pm) on a Wednesday at weekly intervals from the end of September to the beginning of November 2017. The venue will be The Meeting Point House at Telford Shopping Centre, Southwater Square, Telford TF3 4HS.
This course is intended for anybody who is interested in humanism and wishes to find out more about its principles and the activities of humanists. No previous knowledge of humanism or philosophy is required. There will be a fee of £20 for the course to cover expenses.
The course will be limited to 20 participants. You do not need to be a member of the British Humanist Association, but we would prefer (but don’t insist) that you are a member of the Shropshire Humanist Group.
A course folder, which is distributed at the beginning of the course, includes all the material needed for the discussions on which the course is based. Participants are encouraged to read the material in advance, so that they can bring contributions and questions to each session.
