#VisitMyMosque on Sunday 1 February

vmm2-300x300This Sunday is a great opportunity to visit our local mosques and enjoy a cup of tea.  Islamic centres will be opening their doors to visitors as part of a Muslim Council of Britain initiative to reach out to fellow Britons following tensions around terrorism.

Mosques will be sharing tea and refreshments, alongside an insight into the day-to-day goings on of a busy Muslim centre of worship.

Members of the community are there to get to know one another better and some may be on hand to answer questions about Muslims and Islam where this is possible.  Local mosques will also be inviting inter-faith leaders as well, and all will be invited to come together to demonstrate unity and solidarity during what has been a tense time for faith communities.

Many mosques welcome visitors as a matter of course, but a list of participating centres can be found here and is being regularly updated.  Those in London include Islamic centres from a range of Islamic traditions:

Balham Mosque, 47A Balham High Rd, Tooting SW12 9AW  www.balhammosque.org
