In the summer of 1982, a Welsh Congregational Church was purchased and converted into a Mosque. This, however, was quickly outgrown and as a consequence of that, the old building was pulled down to make way for a new and improved version - the Mosque you see today.

Construction began in 1999 and during this period, the Navel Club behind the site was purchased and used as a temporary building for daily prayers with Jummah (Friday congregation) being held in a hired hall.

The completed Mosque was named the 'Jamia Masjid & Islamic Centre' (JMIC) and although it had been in use from the year 2000, the official opening was on the 18th of May 2001 by His Excellency, Abdullah Sultan Al-Dhahiri - Director General of "The Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahayan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation".

The Jamia Masjid & Islamic Centre prides itself in being actively involved in helping the local community, and offers the following services:

  • Janaaza (Funeral Prayer).
  • Nikkah (Islamic Marriage Ceremony).
  • Registration of Individuals/Families to find a partner for marriage.
  • Advice session for Health and Well-being (every Friday after Jummah Prayer).
  • Advice session for Finance (every Friday after Jummah Prayer).
  • Help and support on a wide variety of matters (provided they are relevant).
  • Organised visits from Schools in the Berkshire and Buckinghamshire Counties.
  • Multi/Inter-Faith visits and meetings.
  • Visits by multiple agencies for Educational purposes.

For the Nikkah Ceremony, advance booking is required with the Mosque Management - please get in touch if you have any questions, or for more details. You can download the booking form by clicking here - please email the completed form to us in order to progress with the process.

The centre is also registered with the Registrar of Marriage's Office.
