Who we are

Lancashire Secular Humanists provide a forum for people of Lancashire to meet and discuss social, political, religious, philosophical, scientific and artistic issues.

LSH is affiliated to the British Humanist Association, which represents the interests of ethically-concerned but non-religious people; and the National Secular Society, which challenges religious privilege and promotes separation of church and state.

Committed to human rights, democracy, equality and mutual respect, LSH, along with the BHA and NSS, works for an open and inclusive society with freedom of belief and speech.

What we believe

We make our decisions using available evidence and by assessing the outcomes of our actions, not on any dogma or sacred text. In this video, LSH members tell you what Humanism, Secularism and being part of the LSH group means to them.

Next Meeting - August 20th

I hope you'll be able to make this month’s LSH meeting. It’s that 'Pecha Kucha' time of the year again … [Already!!! I’m clearly having too much fun]

For those who don’t already know – Pecha Kucha is Japanese for ‘Chit Chat’. And it’s always a great chance to hear a wide range of views & opinions … either things we rarely get around to considering during the rest of the year – or something somebody wants to get off their chest – or share – or promote – or demonstrate.

Anybody who wants to [you included] can speak (or sing / play / dance / mime / juggle etc) on any subject of their choosing. They have 6.min 40.secs all to themselves ... No questions - No interruptions - No More Time Than That! We find that people come along and tell us about some very obscure / interesting / entertaining / though-provoking things.

The beauty of the time constraint is two-fold.
1. We all get to hear lots of snippets about a whole range of different things.
2. If there 'is' something the completely bores you ... You only have to endure it for 6.min 40.secs
As this is always a relaxed and easy-going event – the chairs & tables will be arranged in cabaret style … why not bring a bottle – there will be cake!
