Runnymede Hub appeal
For over 25 years, Runnymede Muslim Society has been providing services to residents, students, the local Muslim community and the wider community around the areas of Egham, Virginia Water and Staines, in addition to the global Muslim student community at the prestigious Royal Holloway University.
Throughout this time we have been organising Jumuah (Friday), Ramadan and Eid services as well as a range of community and charity activities. Up until now these have been held on a nomadic basis, at the university, churches, schools, libraries or community venues.
During 2020 inshaAllah, we plan to establish our permanent centre in Egham, for delivering our community services and communal prayers. The centre will be known as the Runnymede Hub, to reflect the broad range of our activities offered and make it clear that everyone is welcome. We are also avoiding the term 'mosque' as the common perception is of a place just for formal prayer.
It will be used to further the Runnymede Muslim Society aims of;
- promoting the educational and spiritual well-being of Muslims in the area,
- providing a space for the wider community and fostering good relations with our neighbours by raising positive Islam-awareness.
Help us establish the Runnymede Hub, it will be a place of prayer, education and social activity.
