Woodford Muslim Cultural Centre (WMCC) was established in 2015. Our aims are to provide prayer and educational facilities in accordance to the teachings of Islam to help advance the Muslim community in Woodford and the surrounding areas.
The muslim community has been living in the area for over 25 years and praying for the opportunity to set-up an Islamic Centre in the area. As the community grew, the demand for a local muslim centre to cater for their religious needs.
The two shops went up for sale in October 2013 and local muslims came together to form a team to initiate the purchase of the properties and set-up the muslim centre.
Once the team had been gathered and a purchase priced agreed for the property, there was only about 6 weeks to raise the funds to purchase the property. So the team tried everything they could to put together the funds for the purchase approaching all contacts they knew in the area as well as neighbouring boroughs and exploring many different sources.
The name of the charity was agreed and a committee was quickly set-up. Ultimately the purchase was completed by 31st December 2013. Basic prayers were started immediately with a few people praying when they can at the property.
