ABOUT US


Havering Islamic Cultural Centre has many objectives and roles it is involved in the religious, cultural and social life of Havering. The primary role is to promulgate the true meaning and understanding of Islam as a religion of peace, tolerance and coexistence.

The role the Trustees play is of paramount importance in helping to create an environment open to all cultures and backgrounds. We have actively created a culture of openness that truly welcomes interactions and dialogue between Havering Islamic Cultural Centre and all members of society, ensuring an environment that encourages links with the community. This helps to shape a core component of the vision and message of the Centre, its focus on community engagement.

We also have an Interfaith committee which creates dialogue with and amongst those of different faith communities. In this we aim to spread harmony and interconnectedness between all people of faith. As part of this initiatives we also welcome students from Havering on guided tours around the Centre

At the heart of all our efforts is you the people we serve, we welcome you to browse our website which has much more information to find out more about the Centre and its role in society, much of which stems from your support. We also welcome any suggestions to help us improve further in our approach to serving and supporting our faith while building bridges with other communities of faith across Havering and the UK.
