The Jamia Mosque is open to visitors throughout the year. We receive a large number of visitors from schools, colleges, universities and other institutions wishing to find out more about the mosque and the Islamic faith for projects and studies. Redhill Jamia Mosque is nationally known for reference and advocacy of Muslims and Islamic Issues.
The mosque’s congregation and staff have been the subject of numerous television and news features in recent years. Much of the media focuses on the mosque’s involvement in national and international human rights and political issues as well as the mosque’s inter-faith alliances. Since the mosque was built, it has become a focal point for the Muslim community. Over the years, Muslims/non-Muslims have used this mosque’s premises for events such as meetings, lectures, studies, community and educational purposes.
The Redhill mosque is unique because we are open to all people and religions and we offer many services and facilities that not even the larger mosques offer. We work with over 240 schools throughout the region and have many schools visit us weekly for talks.We always welcome everyone to come and talk to us, see our mosque and view its interior artwork and design as it used to be a church.
Since the mosque’s erection, it has become a focal point for the Muslim community. Over the years, Muslims have used the mosque for events, meetings, lectures, studies and community and educational purposes. Many of the original founders of the mosque committee still make up the mosque management or are trustees of the mosque but as time has passed, many new innovations have been made as to how the mosque is democratically run using Islamic teachings as the basis for the equal representation of all members of the community. Thus, regular meetings, annual selection and equal opportunities have meant that the running of Birmingham Central Mosque has been as efficient as possible over the decades.
The initial establishment was fuelled by a desire to provide a united and uniform platform to promote the needs and aspirations of the county’s Muslim community.Redhill Islamic Centre is founded on the principles of serving the communities of Reigate& Banstead.
Through the support of its affiliated Mosque organisations and its partners, RIC has endeavoured to place the individual and collective needs of the Muslim community firmly on the agenda of all service providers within the catchment area.
The scope of RIC activities covers the varied areas of education and employment, health, crime and antisocial behaviour, media, quality assurance, young people and families.Through our work, we seek to promote an awareness of Islam amongst all communities, as well as foster understanding, better community relations and community cohesion.
There is an appreciation that the issues of common concern within the community have to be tackled in a partnership community approach.RIC believes it has made outstanding progress in the achievement of its broad objectives and will continue to pursue the challenges of the future.
