Our Mosques Our Future


A one day conference organised by the Muslim Council of Britain

The first mosque in history – the Prophetic Mosque in the city of Medina – was a space where people came together not only in ritual worship but also as families and as a community. It also played a vital role in interfaith work, charity and education.

Today there are an estimated 1,500 mosques in Britain. British Muslim communities must ask themselves:

-Are our mosques today failing to follow the Prophetic model?
-How many are truly providing services beyond just a prayer space?
-And in an increasingly challenging environment, how is the role of the mosque in 21st century Britain changing?

Join us for an action-packed day on 20th January 2018 featuring TED-style talks, keynote speeches and interactive workshops exploring the challenges and opportunities facing mosques in Britain today.

Perhaps now it is more important than ever to embody the Prophetic Mosque model.
