Local free-thinkers helping everyone get the most from the one life we have

Welcome to

Chester Humanists

We are Humanists from Chester, Wirral and North Wales.


We’re a friendly bunch who meet regularly to share and practice our Humanist beliefs and values.

As Humanists we believe a meaningful life is achieved by seeking happiness in this life and helping others do the same.

What Do

We Do?

The skills and activities of our group are diverse, from highly trained celebrants and school speakers, to people with only casual interest in the subject.


We offer a range of services and educational programmes for our members as well as engage with other groups who share our values.


Our aim is to provide a safe, comfortable space for members to learn more about humanism and themselves, as well as build friendships with like-minded individuals.

What is


Humanists believe that you can lead good lives without religion or belief in the supernatural.


We seek to make the best use of the one life we have by creating meaning and purpose for ourselves, using reason, experience and shared human values.


We not only trust in the scientific method when it comes to understanding how the universe works and reject the idea of the supernatural; but also we make our ethical decisions based on reason, empathy, and a concern for human beings, the environment and other sentient beings.

Our varied services and activities promote self-learning, humanist values, and friendship.
