Why does there need to be a group for humanists?
Human beings are social animals, so we often feel the need to get together. This might be for support, or to learn new things, to meet new people, or to work together for a common cause. Most often, we just want to get together for the sake of it, to relax and to have fun with like-minded people.
Local humanist groups exist for anyone who wants to get together in relation to their humanist, atheist or secularist beliefs. The groups undertake a variety of activities that give people the opportunity to:
Meet and socialise with like-minded people;
Campaign on humanist, atheist and secularist issues;
Learn, exchange ideas, and debate issues
Volunteer and engage in other charitable work;
Represent atheist, humanist and secularist views, and provide a balance to the influence of religious groups;
Promote and celebrate scientific and rational thinking;
Promote humanism as a life-stance;
