Tours & Visits (SUSPENDED DURING CORONAVIRUS LOCK-DOWN)
For many years WFIA has welcomed visitors from various organisations and establishments both nationally and internationally to the see the masjid. Many of our visitors are from faith, inter-faith and educational institutions wishing to further their understanding of Islamic teachings and worship.
WFIA is open to visitors throughout the year. We receive a large number of visitors from schools, colleges and universities with an interest to find out more about the workings of a mosque and the Islamic faith for projects and studies. We are happy to tailor tours according to appropriate recommendations.
WFIA also holds and annual Open Day to engage with the local community, to learn more about each other, and also to thank local residents around the mosque for their support throughout the year.
We frequently get thank you messages from schools and touring parties. Here’s a recent one:
Thank you Message from a Local School Teacher
Thank you for allowing our classes to visit your Mosque last term. Like I said to your colleague, it was one of the best trips I have been on in my career. It was very interactive and the children learnt a great deal. They loved having the hoola hoops and fruit shoots back in class too. It was a nice touch. I took some photos which I promised to share with you for your records.
