Home > Who we are

We are a group of people who meet to discuss a wide range of topics - philosophical, moral, social, political, scientific - and who work together to promote humanist ideas and values.

We meet about once a month, often with a speaker, in a variety of venues. More information about our meetings can be found in the Events calendar. In addition, we arrange social events and are involved in raising money for charitable causes.

The group was founded in the 1960s, and is part of a network of autonomous humanist groups throughout Britain that are affiliated to the British Humanist Association (BHA), the national charity that supports and represents people who seek to live good lives without religious or superstitious beliefs. The BHA is in turn an influential member of the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU).

So by joining Birmingham Humanists you become part of a worldwide movement. However, as we are a separate organisation, not a branch of the BHA, we would strongly urge you to join the BHA as well as our group, to increase the strength of numbers.

If you would like to come to an informal meeting with one or two of our members to find out more about Humanism and Birmingham Humanists please contact us. We look forward to welcoming you.

To find out more about Humanism, and about our group, look at copies of our newsletter or come along to one of our meetings - see the events calendar.
