Welcome to Shropshire Humanists


Shropshire Humanists was formed in 2006 as a voice for those in the county and around who live decent and useful lives without superstitious belief and without religion. We are affiliated to Humanists UK and come together to discuss relevant issues and to meet up with those of a like mind.

We believe that the growth of fundamentalist religious beliefs can represent a real threat. Although we have no wish to dictate what other people think we are firmly of the view that religious beliefs and practices are essentially private matters, and should have no influence in our legislative system or our state-funded education system.

Shropshire Humanists aims to campaign for those issues both locally and nationally and aspires to grow to provide a local voice. A welcome is given to those who have sympathy with these objectives or wish to find out more.

How to apply for membership of Shropshire Humanists

You are welcome to attend a meeting without joining. Membership is usually £12 for the year. In 2022 we have set the subscription at £6 per annum – half the usual £12 – due to the present lack of face-to-face meetings. However, if you prefer to keep your contribution to £12, it will be much appreciated as it will help our charitable giving, and hence hopefully raise our profile in the local community.

If you join part way through the year there is a discount. You may attend 3 meetings free but after that we request that you join.

You can join at meetings or you can download the form below. We can now accept payments by bank transfer, details of which can be found in the form.
