Lincolnites invited to Mosque open day

A chance to learn about the life of the mosque

The Islamic Association of Lincoln is inviting residents across the city to an open day at the Dixon Street mosque as part of the national Visit My Mosque initiative.

The open day takes place on Sunday, March 3 at the Lincoln Central Mosque and Cultural Centre, Dixon Street between 11am and 4pm.

After years of fundraising, the £2 million mosque was officially opened in May 2018. 

As the facility approaches its year anniversary, the society hopes to give local people an insight into the life of the place of worship and to promote a greater understanding of Islam.

Chairman and Trustee Professor Tanweer Ahmed said: “we hope to give members of the local community an engaging insight into the life of the mosque.

“We anticipate welcoming local people from all walks of life to visit the mosque and meet with its diverse Muslim congregation.

“Since its formal opening in May 2018, our new mosque has drawn visitors from schools and the public throughout the year.

“The open attitude of the mosque and its people make a major contribution in fostering interfaith and intercultural understanding in the local community.

“We would be honoured to have your presence on the day between 11.00 am and 4.00 pm. If you are able to arrive by 1pm, you will have the opportunity to observe mid-day prayer. Light refreshments will be served throughout the day.”
