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

  • Religious minorities, atheists and apostates are routinely treated appallingly in theocratic countries. Every human should be free to express their own thoughts, beliefs and religious choices, provided they do not impinge on other people's rights.

    Tim, Gloucestershire
  • 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
  • People should have the free will to practise whatever religion they wish. I support actions challenging religious organisations' campaigns to manipulate laws and services according to their own belief systems. I hope my membership makes a valid contribution to this important cause.

    Amber
  • Children can be segregated and discriminated against according to their parents' religion when it comes to school admissions. This worries me immensely. I am not looking forward to letting my children be taught superstition and myths as truth or separating them from their friends. The NSS is all we have to take on the might of these tax-exempt organisations given free access to our children by the state.

    Martin, Darlington
  • The NSS has a broad and balanced agenda, delivered with courtesy, integrity and fortitude, I subscribe to with enthusiasm. The removal of religious privileges from all aspects of our lives has become very important to me. I am delighted to be a member.

    John, Norfolk
