The Community Outreach Team from the Jamia Masjid hosted the Eid Lunch 2018 for Age Concern in Slough today. Nearly 30 elderly guests and staff enjoyed delicious Pakistani cuisine along with our Trustees and volunteers from the mosque. Our volunteers thanked the guests for attending, and delivered a short talk on the significance or Ramadan and Eid. Later in the afternoon, specialist Henna artists delighted guests with their work.

Elaine Gammond, the Centre Manager praised the event and stated “Thank you for arranging such a lovely day. Everything was perfect, the food was great!”

Well done to all the volunteers who made this event the success that it was. Exciting new community projects in the pipeline – stay tuned!

In the summer of 1982, a Welsh Congregational Church was purchased and converted into a Mosque. This, however, was quickly outgrown and as a consequence of that, the old building was pulled down to make way for a new and improved version - the Mosque you see today. Construction began in 1999 and during this period, the Navel Club behind the site was purchased and used as a temporary building for daily prayers with Jummah (Friday congregation) being held in a hired hall. The completed Mosque was named the 'Jamia Masjid & Islamic Centre' (JMIC) and although it had been in use from the year 2000, the official opening was on the 18th of May 2001 by His Excellency, Abdullah Sultan Al-Dhahiri - Director General of "The Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahayan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation".
