About Us


think for themselves about what is right and wrong, based on reason and respect for others.
Find meaning, beauty and joy in the one life we have, without the need for an afterlife.
Look to science instead of religion as the best way to discover and understand the world.
Believe people can use empathy and compassion to make the world a better place for everyone.

Ely Humanists…

• Meet and socialise with like-minded people;
• Campaign on humanist, atheist and secularist issues;
• Exchange ideas and debate;
• Learn (e.g. through guest speakers);
• Represent atheist, humanist and secularist views in local affairs, and provide a balance to the influence of religious groups;
• Promote and celebrate scientific and rational thinking;
• Promote humanism as a life-stance;
• Have fun!

We usually meet on the first Saturday of the month at Ely Library. There is a £2 fee to cover the cost of room hire and an additional £12 annual membership fee to cover expenses for speakers. Details and times of meetings will be posted on this website. You can also follow us on Facebook and Meetup.

For more information, or if you would like to volunteer as a committee member, please contact us via the email address below.

Although we hope local humanists will also join Humanists UK, it is not necessary for membership of Ely Humanist Group.
