Welcome to our website
Our community has over 600 Muslims and has been rapidly growing recently with families settling in and calling this ‘home’. We have many nationalities (British, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian, Egyptian, Moroccan etc) and we have an urgent need to establish solid foundations for the Islamic and moral future of our children.
At the present moment, we are renting sports halls and have a small mosque in Newbury but neither of these can be a long term solution. We wish to have a centre where we can pray, hold Maths and English classes for our children, undertake sports activities (such as indoor football, cricket, tennis), have a regular point of contact with the statutory services ( Police, Ambulance, Fire, NHS, housing associations, Town Council etc) where we can provide assistance and reassurance to those in need, promote cultural understanding by inviting others ( of any faith or of none at all ) to associate and share points of view.
We need a Centre and we’re looking to raise funds to buy an existing building or land, and then build upon that for our and future generations and are looking to raise at least £400,000 allowing us to either purchase a building or acquire suitable land upon which to build.
We have a desire to incorporate these activities in a central location so we have a ‘home’.
Our Vision is to have a facility where we can establish the following services:
- Prayer facilities
- Ramadan activities
- Eid Celebration
- Islamic, Maths and English education
- Community activities
- Youth Club
- Social Activities
- Representation within statutory services
So, come on over and get in touch. You’ll find we’re approachable, committed and already active in the local community.

Thank you for your interest in our project.
Whoever builds a mosque with the intention of seeking Allah’s pleasure. Allah will build for him a house in Paradise. (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Hadith 441 Vol.1)
