our exciting new development

A New Hub for The Community

Our community in Forest Gate is growing, Alhamdulillah. However, our community provisions need to reflect the same. Embark on this journey to build a new Mosque and community hub.

Our new development is an ambitious £6m project that will become the centre of our community.

New Mosque

Our new mosque will have a capacity of 1400+ prayer spaces for the community allowing for a more comfortable and spacious prayer experience.

New school

Our new purpose-built school will be housed across three floors in the new development, kitted out with state-of-the-art equipment to help our pupils become high achievers.

multi-purpose hall

A new multi-purpose hall in the basement of our new building will allow events and private functions to be hosted there for the community, as well as doubling up for prayer space.

dedicated women's space

We want to ensure our sisters have a space to pray and also host their own activities, and this will all be possible in the new building.

“Forest Gate Central Masjid has been a home of peace for me. It’s where I connect with my faith and find a welcoming community—truly a spiritual home.”

Abdul Malik

“Forest Gate Mosque is where I’ve found guidance, support, and a sense of belonging. The Islamic classes here have shaped my understanding of faith, intertwining with my daily life. It’s a nurturing ground for spiritual growth and community connection, a cornerstone of our lives.”

Khaled Miah

“Attending the Masjid feels like being part of a family. The sense of community and support here has deeply enriched my faith and life.”
