Following the announcement made by the Government, Colchester Islamic Cultural Association has taken the extremely difficult decision to close the Mosque for all activities after Isha prayer Wed 4th November including.

The mosque will be CLOSED to the public for individual prayers, congregation prayers or any other activity, including Jumma at Abbeyfield Centre until at least 2nd December. This is for everyone’s safety. Please continue to take all the precautions and look after each other.

We’ll try to hold online Friday talk at 1 pm every week InshaAllah (Please check our Facebook and YouTube pages for more details)

All the mosques associated with Essex Council of Mosques have also agreed to close.

About Us

Colchester Islamic Cultural Association

Colchester Mosque was established to provide facilities for regular communal worship. Since its inauguration the mosque has become a focal point for the multicultural Muslims of Colchester to meet, learn and pray. Additionally, the mosque serves as a channel for people of other faiths and of no particular faith to visit and find out about Islam and Muslims first hand and on a personal level if so desired. The mosque regularly welcomes visits from schools and other institutions.

Fundamentals of Faith

There are five “Pillers” of Islam
