Interfaith prayers and reflections with the Baha’i community

7.00-8.00 pm Thurs 12th November

The Devon Bahá’ís community invites anyone who wishes to join them for a devotional gathering. Respect for other people’s faiths is absolutely central to our faith and we always welcome readings and prayers from other faiths. Our meetings are simple and informal, with participants simply taking it in turns to read a prayer or passage from scripture. So, all are welcome: please bring a prayer, a reading or just yourself.

Free event
