Baha'i
The Baha'is of Calderdale are a local part of the national and worldwide Baha'i Faith community. They come from different backgrounds and countries, sharing a faith inspiring them to work peacefully together to try to achieve the spiritual and practical unity of the beautifully diverse human family.

The Baha’i Faith itself is an independent world religion with millions of followers around the globe. Its Founder is called Baha’u'llah (the ‘Glory of God’). He taught all the world’s major religions come from one source and share the same spiritual principles of love, fellowship and peace; that there is one God, and that religion evolves through progressive stages to aid humanity’s social and spiritual growth. Baha’is work to promote equality between women and men, to remove extremes of poverty and wealth, and to end prejudices of race and creed. They look for harmony between science and religion, as two different ways of investigating the world and our place in it.

Baha’is believe in the importance of education for all, including the right and responsibility of everyone to investigate truth, and what to believe, for themselves. Local Baha’i activities include open-to-all devotional gatherings, classes for children, study circles, and Holy Day celebrations.'
