Neighbours and friends gather together to discuss community building endeavours.
Bahá'u'lláh’s vision of the oneness of humanity can best be achieved through the transformation of both our individual and collective lives.
We cannot segregate the human heart from the environment outside us and say that once one of these is reformed everything will be improved. Man is organic with the world. His inner life moulds the environment and is itself also deeply affected by it. The one acts upon the other and every abiding change in the life of man is the result of these mutual reactions.
UK Bahá’í Community
The Bahá’í community of the United Kingdom comprises over 7000 Bahá’ís who, with a few thousand friends and neighbours, are working together to contribute to the spiritual and material progress of our society. Together they are striving to establish a pattern of community life that embodies the principle of the oneness of humanity.
Members of the British Bahá’í community are representative of the country’s rich cultural and ethnic diversity, and live throughout the United Kingdom, from rural Cornwall or the Shetland Islands, to large metropolitan cities like London, Manchester and Glasgow.
