Visit to Pines Day Care Centre

During half term, a small team from the JMIC visited the Pines Day Care Centre for the elderly.
Great credit goes out to the organisers who have kept up regular visits to the centre since summer, bringing many happy smiles to faces of our elders. Keep it up kids (and mums)!!
JMIC – committed to our community.

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".
