Join us for our annual Big Summer Social for comedy, music, food, and making friends!

Each year we intend to have a big social in the winter around Christmas time, and a big social in the summer. These events are free of charge and open to anyone who has left a high-control religious group. All of our service users and volunteers are invited. This is a great opportunity to meet other people with similar life experiences and make friends.

This year we will have the hilariously funny and award winning comedian Charlie George who is performing at the Edinburgh Fringe festival this year. Charlie is also an ex-Jehovah's Witness so will be able to talk about the funny side of what it's like to be in a controlling religion and leave it.

We will have music from the London Humanist Choir too. They are the UK's foremost community humanist, atheist, and secular choir.

There will be music playing in the background and a chance to just chit-chat the night away. We will also be providing a light finger buffet. There is a bar and restaurant upstairs at this venue, so you will be able to purchase additional food and drink if you like.

The event is being held in East London and the nearest station will be Stoke Newington. This is easily accessible to those outside of London too.

If you are a service user or a volunteer you will be emailed about this event with the full venue address, but you will still need to register below to go. Places are limited and it's first come, first served. If you are not already a service user and would like to be, contact Terri at info@faithtofaithless.com for details, or register below and I will contact you to explain further.
