Overview


The Bahá’í community life involves a diverse range of activities which are characterised by a spirit of loving fellowship as well as their inclusiveness. Inspired by the belief that the message of Bahá’u’lláh is for all of humanity, Bahá’í community activities are open to everyone and you are welcome to participate in any of them regardless of your background, ideas or beliefs.

The spiritual transformation of society is the ultimate goal of all Bahá’í endeavours. Therefore like all other Bahá’í communities throughout the world, the Bahá’ís of South Warwickshire are engaged in a number of core activities to enhance this process of spiritual transformation in our area, a transformation which is based on action and not mere words.

"Let deeds not words be your adorning"
-Bahá’í Writings, Bahá’u’lláh

Study Circles

In a society so materially advanced we have developed many skills enabling us to deal with complexities of everyday life. Yet a simple act of service such as visiting a friend and together studying the Word of God or having an uplifting discussion around spiritual matters presents itself as a challenge. In a study circle, participants study in depth some of the Bahá’í Writings to gain knowledge, spiritual insights and skills which enable them to perform various spiritual acts of service. Reflections on the Life of the Spirit is the first in a sequence of books developed for this purpose. It focuses on our relationships with one another and God, and the journey of the soul.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            (Read more here)

Moral and Spiritual Education of Children

Children are the treasures of our community and through Bahá’í Children’s Classes they are nurtured to become youth and adults possessing universal values, who uphold high morals and who are unhampered by the negative social influences surrounding our everyday life. Bahá’í spiritual education also provides the children with an all-embracing global perspective, empowering and enabling them to serve humanity in their own way and help make a difference in the world.

Prayer and Devotional Gatherings

Devotional gatherings are regularly held in various localities throughout South Warwickshire for the purpose of communal worship of God, through the recitation of readings and prayers accompanied by uplifting music. There are no rituals and you can simply sit, meditate and enjoy the spiritual atmosphere.  
                                                                                                                                                                                           (Read more here)

Junior Youth Empowerment Programme

The Junior Youth Programme is designed for young people age 11 ro 14.  The groups meet regularly and with the assistance of a trained older youth as facilitator,  participate in various activities, such as discussions, recreation, activities and service projects.
The groups are supported to take ownership for their spiritual and intellectual development, to develop a strong sense of purpose and volition  needed to make good decisions, and to engage in meaningful social action in their communities. The project is devoted to involving junior youth in programmes of activity that will:
  • Engage their interests, 
  • Mould their capacities for service to others, 
  • Assist them to transform their own lives and that of the society, 
  • And involve them in positive social interaction with the community.
                                                                                                                                                                                             (Read more here)                                   

Fireside Evenings

Fireside evenings are small informal gatherings which provide an opportunity for those interested in the Bahá’í Faith to meet other Bahá’ís, discuss the spiritual themes of the Bahá’í Faith and ask questions in an open and informal forum.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  (Read more here)
