Join the NSS

Join us from as little as £2 per month. Make a stand for fairness and individual rights. Challenge the unfair influence of religious groups and ideas. Unite with other secularists to promote freedom of and from religion, in Britain and abroad.

We receive no funding from government or outside bodies. Our campaigning is wholly supported by our members – people like you who share our belief in the urgent need to separate religion and state. Your membership will also give you the chance to stay up to date with secularist news and shape NSS policy.

A direct debit is the most effective way to support the NSS – it allows us to predict how much money we will have available, and also cuts down on administration costs, enabling us to increase the scale of our activities.

What our members say

  • We cannot, and should not, protect our country's children from being brought up by ultra-conservative religious parents but we can, and should, ensure that they go to a school where they learn about other religions, about humanism, about living without religion and are given the confidence that people of all faiths and none are treated equally under the law.

    Susan, Devon
  • The NSS is Britain's front line defence against the vested interests of organised religion that damage our public institutions, not least in education and local government.

    Clive, Bideford
  • Unacceptable- 26 bishops are able to influence legislation which will directly affect me - for no other reason than they are connected to the established church.

    Matt, Ipswich
  • I chose a non-denominational school for my son and yet he still has to take part in daily collective worship. A theatre group called "Open the Book" entertain his class once a week with Bible stories, in addition to an RE class. Religion should be taken out of schools altogether and more time spent on aspects of the curriculum relevant to adult life. Excluding him would however make him the odd-one-out.

    Nicolle, London
  • We should not label our children as Christian, Muslim or any other religious group. So big NO to faith schools.
