About Us

Greater Manchester Humanists meet in Manchester and Stockport to hear talks, to chat, debate and think about moral and current issues from a non-religious perspective.  Our meetings are open to all.  There are startup groups in Oldham, Bolton and Blackburn.

Greater Manchester Humanists was founded in 1992. We are a partner of the British Humanist Association and affiliated to the National Secular Society.  We meet on the second Wednesday of every month at Friends' Meeting House, Mount Street, Manchester, M2 5NS (behind the Central Library). We ask for a small donation at these meetings to cover the cost of room hire and refreshments but the first meeting attended is FREE.

Stockport Humanists was set up in 2010 and in 2016 become a partner group of the BHA.  We meet on the third Wednesday every month at the Boars Head pub, 2 Vernon Street, Market Place Stockport SK1 1TY.  On the fourth Wednesday of every month we have a Social. We meet at the Rhode Island CafĂ© in Stockport town centre at 2.30pm. This is an informal gathering with no set agenda; it's just nice to sit with a drink and chat with like-minded people. 2 Little Underbank, Stockport SK1 1JT.

We organise and are involved with many other events, including regular Amble-Rambles, debates with religious organisations and local community events. We have a choir.  From time to time we hold an Introductory Course on Humanism - normally running over six evenings.  Both groups produce monthly newsletters.
