“The purpose of religion as revealed from the heaven of God’s holy Will is to establish unity and concord amongst the peoples of the world…” -Bahá’u’lláh
Bahá’í life involves prayer, fasting, community gatherings – including for Bahá’í Holy Days – spiritual and moral education, and service to the local community. These activities may also include elements of music, storytelling or other artistic creativity.
Devotionals and study circles
Bahá’í devotional gatherings and study circles take place in our community and are open to all. Anyone of any age, background, race, faith or no faith, is welcome to come and to be spiritually inspired in an informal, open atmosphere.
During devotionals some of the Bahá’í scriptures are read out, sung or put to music as a way to refresh and to inspire us to practice good virtues in our daily lives in our relationships with our friends, families, neighbours and colleagues. You can watch this very short video about our approach to devotional gatherings:
Study circles are where small groups learn about the history and teachings of the Faith together. They usually involve a practical part too. This is a simple act of service, such as going together to study a prayer with a friend or neighbour.
Classes for children and junior youth
Bahá’u’lláh said that spiritual and moral education for children and young adults was very important. All Bahá’í communities try to offer some form of classes. These are also open to all. There are different classes for different age groups, normally for younger children and for junior youth. The video below explains a little about our approach:
