ABOUT US

FOR A LIFE BASED ON REASON,

NOT REVELATION

"My country is the world; my religion is to do good..."

CHG MEMBERSHIP...

comprises atheists, agnostics, sceptics, secularists, rationalists…

What unifies us is the conviction that the One Life We Have is best lived without recourse to a supernatural authority, and is all the more fulfilling and authentic for it.

We welcome inquisitive thinkers of all backgrounds and hope you will find the CHG a welcoming and stimulating group.

 

HUMANIST THINKING...

was a feature of Cambridge life for most of the 20th century. A first Humanist Society was formed in 1955 in Cambridge as the outcome of discussions amongst members of the University.

The Cambridge Humanist Group as it is presently constituted was reformed in 1993 by a small number of local Humanists, including Sir Hermann and Lady Bondi.

It is now a thriving local Humanist community with members from all walks of life.

Come and find out what we are like at one of our public meetings!

All public CHG meetings are publicised via our Meetup page.

 

OUTREACH

The CHG provides trained speakers to primary and secondary schools within Cambridgeshire and beyond. We help RE and philosophy tutors teach Humanism as part of the syllabus requirements regarding non-religious belief systems.

We are represented on our local Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE), which is the body responsible for advising the Local Education Authority on Religious Education.

We regularly contribute events to the annual Festival of Ideas hosted by Cambridge University each October, among them the Hermann Bondi Memorial Lecture.

We campaign for equal rights and educational inclusiveness; see our successful contribution to the Gunhild Way Primary School Debate .
