Conway Hall Ethical Society presents:

All change: Religion & Belief in Britain

Sunday 26th April @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Conway Hall,
25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL United Kingdom
+ Google Map

The country is going through a massive change in its religion and belief landscape. Yes, there has been an overall decline in religiosity, but that masks important changes in the mix among the religious, as well as complexity among the non-religious. Does it help to think about three dimensions – belief, behaviour and belonging – rather than simply “religion and belief”? Jeremy looks at the evidence from polling and other sources, and highlights the dangers of generalisations. How can thinking people respond to this dynamic environment?

The Boring Conference is a one-day celebration of the mundane, the ordinary, the obvious and the overlooked – subjects often considered trivial and pointless, but when examined more closely reveal themselves to be deeply fascinating. It was created in response to the cancellation of the 2010 Interesting Conference. It seemed like the obvious thing to do. Ticket details will be announced in due course.

The Improbability Principle: Why Coincidences, Miracles, and Rare Events Happen Every Day

Tuesday 19th May @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Conway Hall,
25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL United Kingdom
+ Google Map
