Welcome

to the online presence of the Bahá’í community of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Learn about our community’s presence and history, find out about our community-building activities, or browse news and events.

Children are invited to attend classes that nurture their tender minds and hearts by teaching them to identify and practice in their lives universal values like honesty, kindness, humility, and compassion. Lessons consist of thematic quotations, songs, games, stories, and creative activities.

Young people (ages 11–14) are invited to participate in a program that encourages meaningful conversations and positive social action. Junior youth improve their powers of expression and literacy skills, enrich community life, and strengthen their moral frameworks, all while forming bonds of true friendship.

All are welcome at devotional gatherings, which are meditative and prayerful meetings frequently held in homes. At a devotional gathering, you can expect to enter a warm and tranquil atmosphere, hear and read the Word of God from the Bahá’í writings and other holy texts, share uplifting conversations with new friends, and enjoy moments of reflection and peacefulness.

You are invited to learn more about the Bahá’í Faith, its texts, and its practices and principles, in a friendly and thoughtful atmosphere, by participating in a study group near you. The first study text, Reflections on the Life of the Spirit, raises topics such as the individual’s relationship with the Word of God, prayer, and life after death. Participants are presented with opportunities to enrich their lives and serve their communities.
