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
