"THE EARTH IS BUT ONE COUNTRY AND MANKIND
In urban centres and rural villages, in homes, schools, businesses, and community centres across the globe, Bahá'ís hailing from every walk of life are engaged in promoting at the grassroots the wellbeing of the entire human race. Through a series of social action activities involving children, junior youth, youth and adults, these citizens of the world are rallying their friends and neighbours, their families and co-workers to paricipate in the collective transformation of society and the betterment of our community.
Bahá'ís around the world believe in the following, as guiding principles:
> Oneness of humankind
> Equality of men & women
> Elimination of all prejudices
> There is only one God
> Harmony of science & religion
> World peace & unity
> Personal investigation of truth
> Universal education
> The family & its unity
> Unity in diversity
> Fellowship with all cultures & faiths
Bahá'ís in Southwark are inspired by the vision set out in the Bahá'í Holy Writings that humanity is one. We believe that education empowers and builds the spiritual and intellectual capacities in adults, young people and children to enable them to become conscious subjects of their own growth and active participants in the betterment of our communities. This is central to the process of building communities with spiritual, intellectual and practical foundatios.
Through a series of study and discussion groups, participants collectively gain knowledge, insights and skills that equip them to contribute towards community building and advancement of their society.
We are engaged in community building in our neighbourhoods and have regular meetings, events and activities open to everyone from any background, culture or religion. We look for and foster what connects us rather than divides us.
