The Visit to Slough and Eton School

Thursday 6th December: Volunteers from the JMIC Outreach Team visited Slough & Eton School to deliver a range of workshops to hundreds of students at the school.

Faith plays a big role in schools; school holidays are sometimes based around faith and many students visibly identify with their faith through clothing, symbolism or diet. However faith is also misunderstood and is often targeted through hate and bullying.

The visit to Slough & Eton school illustrates how important it is to engage with students so that they can develop into global citizens, capable of making intelligent, informed opinions and choices about faith and culture in the years ahead.

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".
