Welcome to Dorset Humanists

Dorset Humanists is a welcoming group for humanists, atheists and agnostics who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We meet in Bournemouth for informative and enjoyable presentations, debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, religion, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more. We also organise regular social events.

On 18th May 2010 Dorset Humanists & Atheism UK were invited to explain Humanist & Atheist beliefs to pupils at the Church of England Bishop Wordsworth Grammar VA School in Salisbury. One of the aims of the RE department is "to broaden our pupils’ understanding of diverse belief systems and the impact these have on chosen lifestyles".

Chris Street, Angela Joynson & Terry Milton jointly took four one hour classes to explain Humanist beliefs to sixty 15 year old boys. Richard Green from Atheism UK spoke about Atheism. Other speakers were from Seikh, Islam, Hindu & Bahá'í faiths.
