Newbury Jamme Mosque is a religious building in the town of Newbury and as a result, a vast number of people from different cultures and backgrounds visit the mosque on a daily basis.
***ANNOUNCEMENT FOR FUNDRAISING FOR WINCHESTER MOSQUE ON FRIDAY 27TH OCTOBER 2023***
We will have representative of Winchester Mosque in Newbury for collection for their mosque.
Please donate generously to help out brothers to buy the building for their mosque.
Winchester is a fairly small city which was once the capital of England. We do not yet have a masjid; we have been renting out various community centres, halls etc for Jummah salah and taraweeh salah in Ramadan. Our nearest masajid are located in Southampton and Basingstoke, both about 15 miles away.
The WMCA has been looking for a property for the first permanent multi-function Mosque and community centre in Winchester for over 23 years. In that time, the committee have viewed several properties for which bids were placed but without success, due to various reasons such as developers placing more favourable bids and concerns over use.
Alhamdullilah, we have made a successful bid of £700,000 for Hyde parish hall and solicitors have been engaged. Hyde Parish Hall is located a short walk from the City Centre and recently came on the market as a freehold sale. Hyde Parish Hall meets a lot of the property requirements that have been set by the WMCA:
* Close to public car parks and public transport
* Has already got F1 planning permission required for a Community Centre and place of worship
* Has a large Hall suitable for gatherings, and congregational prayers for up 200 people.
* Has accessible entrances and facilities,
* Separate 1st floor accommodation.
Alhamdulillah we’ve had a great response from our own community but still require further funds of £175,000. This is made up of the purchase of the mosque, to carry out works and keep some cash in hand.
We are currently in the process of generating more funds for our purchase, and we need help from our brothers and sisters in your community for this amazing opportunity for the house of Allah.
We are seeking your kindness in allowing us to come and fundraise for the house of Allah and help us achieve the first Mosque in Winchester. Please let us know your thoughts and to discuss further you may contact me on my mobile 07901555777.
May Allah help us to raise the funds and accept everyone’s intention and help in this process.
On behalf of Newbury masjid
