Regular news updates:

The British Humanist Association weekly e-Bulletin is available to subscribe to for free and without needing to be a BHA member.

Similarly, every Friday the National Secular Society sends out Newsline, an e-bulletin of their news. You can subscribe to this whether or not you are a member.


The BHA on YouTube:

The BHA has a YouTube channel with a range of excellent short interviews, debates and information pieces. It’s well worth a couple of hours of your time.

This also includes the very engaging series of ‘That’s Humanism’ animations narrated by Stephen Fry – four three-minute videos that are a succinct and positive introduction to humanism and how it affects our lives.


Richard Dawkins – The God Delusion

Richard Dawkins –  A Devil’s Chaplain (A collection of essays and reviews with Dolly and the Cloth Heads and A Prayer for my Daughter especially useful.)

Barbara Smoker – Humanism (5th edition)

Christopher Hitchens  – God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

From the OUP Very Short Introductions series:

No. 99  Atheism – Julian Baggini

No 256 Humanism – Stephen Law


The BHA prints ‘BHA News’ every 10 weeks and these are sent directly to BHA members and to us as a group. Do ask if you would like to see a copy. The BHA also produces a regular  newsletter for groups – see the December 2015 issue.
