#VisitMyMosque Sunday 5 February
- Created on Monday, 16 January 2017
Find out if your local Islamic centre is taking part in #VisitMyMosque Day on Sunday 5 February. Check the map and listings.
Mosques across the country are opening their doors to the public and offering invitations to guests from different religious traditions and world views.
It's a good opportunity to get to know each other or to firm up friendships, for local Muslims to offer hospitality to their neighbours and for Christians to take some friends or a group from church to visit during the afternoon. A return visit can be arranged to a local church. Sometimes there will be a tour of the building and an opportunity to ask questions, sometimes it's an informal cup of tea and a chat. If possible, contact the mosque in advance to find out about the open day. Sometimes visitors are asked to remove their shoes if the prayer area is part of the tour.
The #VisitMyMosque information is being updated daily (each mosque is responsible for its own arrangements) and is facilitated by the Muslim Council of Britain.
