Since its establishment in 1983, Maidenhead Mosque & Islamic Centre has gone through numerous phases of development and progress, with a colourful history behind the structure. Serving the Muslim community, the Mosque has developed over the years catering for all people by providing vital services and assistance.
Maidenhead Mosque, the first purpose built mosque in Berkshire, has evolved to become a focal point for the community. The Mosque has gone through a number of stages of development and progress and the building has become landmark which is well-known to Muslims and non-Muslims. Committed to serving the community, the Mosque has developed over the years catering for all people by providing vital services and assistance.
With recent developments, the services being offered have increased; a recent renovation means that the Masjid accommodates more people, with modern wudhu ablution facilities catering for men and women and the acquirement of the old CAB building to use for classes, meetings, seminars and various events.
Maidenhead Mosque inspires to provide a range of holistic, culturally sensitive services for the community of Maidenhead, drawing on Islamic values and heritage, with a view to improving quality of life and enhancing cohesion.
Their aims are to:
- Focus on the needs of the diverse Muslim community whilst ensuring services are open to all.
- Meet the needs of the local community by promoting health, education and employment opportunities.
- Provide an opportunity to learn and understand Islam, through dialogue, discussion and social interaction.
- Contribute to the social, cultural, spiritual and economic enhancement of the whole community, through policy and strategy development and service.
Maidenhead Mosque campaigns proactively to promote tolerance and understanding. Along with local Mosques, they are a member of the Thames Valley Council of Mosques and UMO (Union of Muslim Organisations) which binds Muslims from different backgrounds and strands of Islam.
