Next meeting

12 April

At the request of the Manchester University Christian group with whom we were going to have a discussion at this meeting, we have now agreed to postpone the event until later in the year.


Creative Campaigning

If you have thoughts and ideas, suggestions, please bring them along with you!

Kevin Malone will be looking at the possibility of making short videos to get our message across and Cathryn will be considering President Trump and what approach – if any – we should take regarding his policies.

If you are new to GMH and/or have a real interest in a particular area, this is a real opportunity to come along and share things, and also to get to know GMH members in a more relaxed scenario.



Regular meetings

We meet at Friends Meeting House, Manchester on the second Wednesday each month – for programme see below. A number of us go on afterwards to The Waterhouse in Princess Street opposite the town hall.

The Humanist Discussion Group meets informally at The Waterhouse at 8.15pm, generally  on the third Tuesday each month (except July, August and December). Topics are announced in the GMH monthly newsletter and background notes can be accessed here.

Stockport Humanists meet at 7.15pm for 7.30pm on third Wednesdays at The Boars Head, 2 Vernon Street (near the Market Place). They also meet socially at 2.30pm on fourth Wednesdays (except December) at the Rhode Island Coffee Bar in Little Underbank. All welcome at both events. For further details, see or contact the secretary of the group.

Other local groups are developing in Bolton and Oldham. For details contact the GMH secretary
