THE BAHÁ'ÍS OF COLERAINE
WHAT WE DO
The Coleraine Baháí community is outward-looking, committed to sharing a basic message of religious understanding and human unity, and to helping build a better world. World-wide they number several millions, and are drawn from every social, racial, and religious background. Coleraine Bahá'ís are active both in community service and in the development of a spirit of tolerance and fellowship between all Faiths. They participate and hold interfaith prayer meetings, attend interfaith workshops, speak at schools assemblies on Baháís Holy days and are committed to community growth and development.
Activities include devotional meetings for prayer and meditation, open discussion groups, organised courses for moral and spiritual development, childrens classes, and special projects for young people. These are all open to everyone, of any or no religious persuasion.
The Baháí Society at the University of Ulster has, held international evenings, dawn picnics, walks, talks on social and economic development, international justice and learning from disaster among many other themes. There have been discussion evenings on health, meditation and prayer sessions as well as musical devotionals.
