THE BAHÁ'ÍS OF NEWTOWNARDS
WHAT WE DO
As the Bahá'í Faith has no clergy, or individuals in positions of personal leadership, and all members are involved in its activities, its elected administrative bodies have a key role to play at local, regional, national, and international levels. There is a vigorous community life involving not just religious observances and administrative meetings but also activities such as discussion classes, devotional meetings, study circles (courses for spiritual and moral development), and children's classes that are open to those of any faith or none.
The Newtownards Bahá'ís are involved with and support a variety of activities in the wider community. The longest running service project, spanning fourteen years, is a contribution to Talking Newspapers, which involves a weekly reading of the local newspaper onto audio tapes for the visually handicapped in the Ards area
