Set up initially in response to the lockdown and the need for social distancing, online gatherings and classes have become a regular feature of Bahá’í community life.

In Maidenhead and across the Thames Valley there are now regular online fireside discussion evenings as well as online devotional gatherings for prayer, reflection and inspiration.

Members of the public – of whatever faith or none – are warmly invited to join the Maidenhead community’s Sunday morning devotional meetings, which start at 10:30am and lasts usually for around 40 minutes. There is no need to contribute in any way – it’s fine to simply listen. And it’s on Zoom, so it’s easy to connect.

If you’d like to join the mailing list for our Sunday morning devotionals, do please get in touch – email bahais.maidenhead@gmail.com – and you’ll receive a weekly email with the theme, the programme and the Zoom link to join.

— Bahá’u’lláh
