Study CirclesIn response to interest from Soul Food guests, the Bahá’í community is now offering a series of regular 'Study Circles' – as an opportunity to further explore subjects related to spiritual development.

Study Circles are small, informal groups, and provide an environment in which to discuss meaningful topics with like-minded people. The first Study Circle is titled "Reflections on the Life of the Spirit", from the Ruhi Institute series based on the Baha'i Writings. If you are interested please contact us.
