Activities

Activities in communities are based at the local Bahá'í Centre if one exists, otherwise they are held in the homes of believers. A list of Bahá'í Centres is given at the bottom of this page.

Bahá'í Holy Days
Most communities will have meetings to commemorate the Bahá'í Holy Days. Sometimes they may be held jointly with other communities. These are open to all.

Devotional Meetings
Many communities may have regular devotional meetings on a day convenient to them. These are open to all.

Other public meetings
Various other public meetings may be planned such as World Religion Day and so forth.

Children's Classes
Many communities have one or more weekly classes for children, often at the weekend. These classes are also open to children of the wider community. The programme includes teaching the children about developing a spiritual character as well as the history of the Bahá'í Faith and about other religions too.

Study circles
These are part of a training program which helps Baha'is and other learn more about serving the needs of the community. These are planned at the local level and are fairly informal. For more see here.

Youth Activities
Some communities hold classes especially for youth between the ages of 12 and 15 years (referred to as junior youth).
Other youth activities vary from one community to another. Many communities have periodic youth gatherings for those over 15 years old. Youth are also frequent participants of study circles.

Bahá'í Nineteen Day Feast
This is held every nineteen days on the first day of the Bahá'í month. It starts with a devotional programme, the affairs of the community are discussed and the meeting ends with social activities.
