WELCOME!

You are reading this by means of a grain of sand given new capacity - silicon dioxide to silicon 'microchip'. Every effect is preceded by a cause. What fresh impulse of creative power has surged though the material and spiritual worlds to cause this phenomenon and the re-ordering of human life?

We believe the source is:

Bahá'u'lláh

(The Glory of God)

The followers of Bahá'u'lláh are called Bahá'ís.

The healing religion of Bahá'u'lláh is called the Bahá'í Faith

It is the fastest growing world religion, the second most widespread on earth after only 155 years and may be the last refuge for a tottering world civilisation.

To cognise is to become aware of, to recognise is to meet again and remember.

We recognise, through Bahá'u'lláh, the source of our existence, the creative, animating power in the universe. Here is the voice speaking from the burning bush, the delicate accents of Jesus the Saviour, the Return, the second coming, the Prince of Peace, the Glory of God.

Paraphrasing the teachings of Bahá'u'lláh, (BA-HA-oo-LAH phonetically),there was only ever one religion - the relationship between one God and humankind. It is refreshed from time to time, from place to place by manifestations of God -Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad to name a few. Whilst the turmoil of 'adolescent' humanity becoming mature is causing untold hardship in the short term, Bahá'u'lláh assures us that humankind is in good hands and the future is unspeakably glorious "the earth is but one country and mankind its citizens".

We need you and everyone on the planet to join with us in the ultimate adventure, the creation of a peaceful, dynamic, encouraging global society based on the principle of unity in diversity, celebrating cultural differences and helping to remove the cause of war - prejudice. It is hard work, the personal rewards are few in this world and all we can offer is the words of Bahá'u'lláh and encouragement. But the plan is God - given and is working ! We invite you to investigate independently and make up your own mind and we would welcome some more helpers :-)

This is IT

We have cozy 'fireside' meetings at our home to talk about Bahá'u'lláh, Spirituality, life, raising families, protecting the earth's environment, social development and the Baha'i writings - we cover almost every subject and frequently have excellent guest speakers. When the world seems to be falling apart for no reason, it is good to meet people with an optimistic vision of its future. The fireside meetings happen most Friday nights at 7.30 - phone to confirm.
