Non-religious people have human needs (just like religious people), particularly around the major events in life and death. These include the need to mark these major events in an appropriate ceremony.  Some might call these ‘spiritual’ needs, but I see them as human – without any transcendental element.

I have performed humanist ceremonies in the Greater Manchester and surrounding areas for some 6 years. I am active in humanism and currently chair of Greater Manchester Humanists and a member of the Board of Trustees of Humanists UK (formerly British Humanist Association).

I live in Salford and have been a humanist since the mid 1990s. I became a humanist after many years of reading and thinking about the evidence for God’s existence.

I prepare and conduct Weddings, Namings and Funerals. I also address meetings about humanism and other matters.
