Humanism is a positive way of life based on reason and experience. Humanists believe in the natural not the supernatural.

Devon Humanists aim to support and represent Humanists in Devon and to promote Humanism throughout the county. We advocate secularism in civil affairs and in education; we support the teaching of Humanism in schools. Humanist ceremonies are preferred by many who are looking for a non-religious celebration of life's rites of passage.

Devon Humanists are now a virtual organisation. If you are interested in Humanism and live in Devon, please register with this site and we will be in touch to let you know what is happening and how you can meet other Humanists.



As well as being Chief Executive of the British Humanist Association, Andrew is President of the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU). His writing on humanist and secularist issues has appeared in The Guardian, The Independent, The Times and New Statesman as well as in various journals. He has represented the BHA and Humanism extensively on television news on BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky.
