Bicentenary Celebration of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh

“The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established.”  – Bahá’u’lláh

You are warmly invited to be our guest at a celebration marking the Bicentenary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh, Prophet-Founder of the Bahá’í Faith. We will celebrate at Cambridge University with a keynote speech by Sean Hinton, music and refreshments, 7:30–8:30pm on Wednesday 22nd November, William Mong Hall, Sidney Sussex College.

Sean Hinton is CEO of the Soros Economic Development Fund and a graduate of Cambridge University and MIT. He has served as Mongolia’s first honorary consul-general in Australia, having worked extensively in China and Mongolia. Sean has lectured around the world, most recently at Oxford University and at Stanford University for the Global Speaker Series. He is also on the international advisory board of the Bahá’í Chair for World Peace at the University of Maryland.

The great vision of Bahá’u’lláh is captured in the quotation: “The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens”.  Seeking to implement the principle of the oneness of humanity envisioned by Bahá’u’lláh, we are striving to overcome prejudice and promote unity at all levels.

We hope that you will be able to join us in the celebrations. Should you require any further information, please contact us at bahai [at]

Welcome to a new year with the Cambridge University Bahá’í Society!  We would like to extend a warm welcome to new and returning students!  We are very pleased to be able to offer a wide range of events this term, including discussion evenings every other Friday, a monthly interfaith devotional/meditation called Soul Food, several fascinating talks by Bahá’í scholars and professionals, and community celebrations.  All of our events are free and open to the public.  See our Michaelmas 2013 Term Card below:


Please note that our first event is a discussion evening tomorrow night at Nabil’s house, which is very close to the train station (email Nabil for directions).  This will continue every other Friday evening throughout the term.  Join our mailing list to receive reminders and updates about the topics we will be discussing.

We also have a Club Squash on Thursday, 17th October at 7:30pm at Clowns Cafe (54 King Street, CB1 1LN).  This will be a fun opportunity to meet other members of the Bahá’í Society in a casual environment and learn more about the events we are holding this term.
