Visit My Mosque Day is a national initiative where over 150 mosques across the UK are organising an open day, the 5th of Feb is that day. Visit My Mosque Day is facilitated by The Muslim Council of Britain.
Mosques across the UK will be sharing tea and biscuits, alongside an insight into the day-to-day goings on of a busy Muslim centre of worship. More mosques will be participating this year from across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Harun Khan, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain said, “Visit My Mosque Day is our chance to welcome fellow Britons to our diverse community. In previous years we were moved by how the great British public has taken part in the day, some travelling dozens of miles to find their local mosques, and the level of enthusiasm in the number of mosques who have invited their neighbours to share in the experience has increased each year. Now its third year, we hope that Visit My Mosque Day becomes a great British institution for years to come.”
I went to the oldest Mosque in Britain earlier and met the Bishop of Liverpool Paul Bayes there and the Rev Dr Crispin Pailing, Parish Priest of St Nicks church in Liverpool. Upon arriving we were greeted warmly. Our hosts provided, tea, coffee and snacks for us before having short talks by some of the Trustee’s. This was followed by a tour of the building and were told about the plans for the future for the place.
