Welcome to our home page
Our new website is gmh.humanist.org.uk which we expect to be fully operational by August 2009.
Greater Manchester Humanists were founded in 1992 (though under a different name). We believe an earlier group was active in Manchester from the 1950s until the mid-1970s.
We are affiliated to the British Humanist Association and the National Secular Society.
As Humanists, we are concerned with values and moral issues from a non-religious standpoint. Like many people in our largely secular society, we have done our best to work these out for ourselves, and are constantly re-assessing them in the light of changing circumstances.
We are also actively concerned to apply our values and to work towards the achievement of a more open, just and caring society.
Our meetings in central Manchester are open to all - membership is not required. See our programme for details of when and where we meet.
We have developed an introductory course on Humanism. The next public presentation is planned for autumn 2009.
Local Group - Buxton meeting - Monday 22 June
The programme will be quite flexible but will include a talk or two by GMH members who live in the area on what Humanism means to them personally. There will be an opportunity to discuss what form local meetings would take if they go ahead.
