    What the Bahá’ís do

    Join the various activities


Spiritual Study

The purpose of the Bahá’í Faith is to unite all of humanity and rebuild society. It’s an organic process that can’t be dictated from above. It starts with the individual’s recognition that there is more to life than material gain, that we are spiritual beings and our greatest happiness truly is in serving others.


Youth Groups

For Bahá’ís, the years of youth are a special time of high potential. Indeed, the young have been at the forefront of activity at every notable point in the history of the Bahá’í faith.


Children's Classes

Bahá’ís in local communities around the world hold weekly children’s classes to develop virtues, learn the history and principles of the Bahá’í Faith and to create a strong moral framework in which they can achieve excellence in the material, intellectual and spiritual aspects of life.



Collective worship is essential to the spirit of the community. Just as the individual’s spiritual journey begins with prayer and a connection to the Creator, collective worship is the foundation for the community’s development and progress. When we come together to worship with our friends and family, prayer becomes part of the fabric of our lives, not just a special occasion.
