Welcoming Defence Humanists for Armistice Day

For the second year running, we are looking forward to hosting the Remembrance event of the Defence Humanists.

Craig Jordan, representing the Defence Humanists, said: ‘

‘We will once again be holding the event at the gorgeous and unconsecrated Fitzrovia Chapel, a popular secular event space at 2 Pearson Square, London W1T 3BF.

‘From 15:00 to 16:00, the event will consist of readings from members of Defence Humanists, talks from Humanists UK’s Andrew Copson, and Defence Humanists’ patron Professor AC Grayling, alongside music from the London Humanist Choir. From 16:00 to 17:00, there will be a reception and opportunity for conversation and reflection.’

He ended with this interesting comment: ‘ Last year, attendees fed back that the opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices made in war in an environment free of religious perspective was welcome, and for some was the first time they had felt truly included in a remembrance event.’
