What we do

‘So powerful is the light of unity that it can illumine the whole earth.’ – Bahá’u’lláh

Bahá’í life involves prayer, fasting, community gatherings – including Bahá’í Holy Days – spiritual and moral education, and service to the local community. Many of these activities will include music, storytelling or other creativity.

Devotionals and study circles

Bahá’í devotional gatherings and study circles are open to all. Everyone is welcome to come and be spiritually inspired in an informal, open setting.

During devotionals Bahá’í scriptures are read out, sung or put to music to refresh and inspire us to practice good virtues in our daily lives in our relationships with friends, families, neighbours and colleagues.

Study circles involve small groups learning about the history and teachings of the Faith, then doing something practical together. This can be a very simple act of spiritual service, such as going together to study a prayer with a friend or neighbour.

Classes for children and junior youth

Bahá’u’lláh said spiritual and moral education for children and young adults was extremely important. Bahá’í communities try to offer open to all classes for different age groups, normally for younger children and for junior youth.

Open to all, free of charge

Our activities often take place in the friendly setting of our homes, are open to all, and are free. Please see our events and news page for the latest details and do contact us to find out more.
