The Bahá'í Community in Northern Ireland
The worldwide faith community of the Bahá'ís believe the crucial need facing humanity is to find a unifying vision of the future of society and of the nature and purpose of life. Here in Northern Ireland we are working to promote that vision through the sharing of ideas, the fostering of unity, and direct service to the wider community.
The Bahá'í Council for Northern Ireland has published this website to give everyone the chance to learn about us and our activities, and to give them the chance to learn more and make contact with the Bahá'ís. We are happy to share our beliefs, to invite people of any faith or none to take part on community-building activities open to all, and to work with other bodies. Bahá'ís believe in the oneness of humankind and their Scriptures tell them to "Consort with the followers of all religions in a spirit of friendliness and fellowship".
The Bahá'í Faith has no clergy, or individuals in positions of personal leadership. Its administration is through these elected bodies at all levels, from the local to the international. All members have a part to play in the affairs of their religion.
