Can life have meaning without God? – Public Debate

Date:       Wednesday 1st March 2017, 7pm-9.30pm
Venue:   Middleton Hall, University of Hull, Cottingham Rd, Hull, HU6 7RX

This is not an event being hosted by the Hull and East Riding Humanist Group, it is a public debate being hosted by the University of Hull.

The debate is free but you must have a ticket in advance to attend. It should be of particular interest to members of our group because it is a debate between the CEO of the British Humanist Association, Andrew Copson and Andy Bannister (Director of the Solas Centre for Public Christianity).

Please visit the website below for full details and to book a ticket for what is promising to be a very interesting debate:

Religious Education in Schools

Date:       Monday 20th March 2017, 7.30pm  – to be confirmed
Venue:    the back room of the Tiger Inn, Lairgate, Beverley, East Yorkshire, HU17 8JG

What place does Religious Education have in UK schools in the 21st century? Should children be taught about non-religious world views such as Humanism as part of Religious Education? Our speaker for our March meeting will be David Horsley who was for many years a history master at Trinity House School in Hull and is a former Mayor of Beverley. He is a theology graduate of Lampeter University and continues to be actively involved in local politics. David will be addressing these and related questions in relation to Religious Education and schools.
