    Individual membership of the Watford Area Humanists provides an opportunity to enjoy social activities with like-minded individuals. Previously, we have organised summer garden parties, winter solstice dinners and occasional coffee mornings. We have also organised external visits to places like Down House in Kent (Charles Darwin’s family home) and attended humanist and secularist conferences in London and elsewhere throughout the UK

    Watford Area Humanists was established in 2008 to:-

    • Promote an understanding of Humanism in South West Hertfordshire.
    • Develop programmes to address the non-religious needs of children, families and people living and working in the South West Hertfordshire area.
    • Provide social, educational and cultural activities for humanists.
    • Provide a base for the development of Humanist philosophy.

    The Watford Area Humanists Group is a partner of Humanists UK (formerly the British Humanists Association). Humanism is a set of beliefs:

    • Human beings can lead good lives without being ruled by fear or superstition.
    • Based upon impartial consideration of available evidence, that there are no gods or creator beings.
    • Based upon impartial consideration of available evidence, that there is no after-life.
    • Being happy and doing good for oneself and others in the one life we all have.
    • Living life on the basis of behaving towards others as you would like them to behave towards you.
    • Respect for all other life forms and the natural environment on our planet Earth.
