Brief History
Image

The growth of the Muslim community during the 1970's and 1980's resulted in the urgent need for a permanent place of worship. So in 1984, the local Muslim community raised the funds to purchase this property from Ipswich Borough Council.

This building, which once served as a Victorian Fire Station, could only accommodate 70 people. Hence, in 1994, we purchased a Portacabin to increase capacity, but before long it began to overflow on Fridays and during Ramadan and Eid.

Ipswich Mosque ran a long fund raising successful campaign to acquire adjoining Building 2006. The new Ipswich Mosque opened in 13th May 2009, adding over 400 more spaces for praying. This has also given us extra space for the children's Islamic classes.

Our vision is to provide a range of holistic, culturally sensitive services for the communities of Ipswich and Suffolk, drawing on our Islamic values and heritage, with a view to improving quality of life and enhancing community cohesion.
