WELCOME TO OUR CENTRE

In a time where peace and harmony amongst people of different faiths and cultures is of greater necessity than ever, Al-Emaan Centre is now poised to embark upon the attainment of this vision; carried by the hearts of individuals, embraced through the unity of the community.

ABOUT US

Al-Emaan Centre is run by members of the local community, for the local community.

Following purchase of the century-old premises in October 2014, renovation work soon ensued. We sought to refurbish the infrastructure and apply a traditional design to the interior architecture, while seeking to respect the original foundations upon which it was built. Works completed in June 2016 and we have looked at realising our vision thereafter.

Al-Emaan Centre seeks to serve the purpose as a religious, spiritual, educational & community centre for the thriving Muslim population in and around Bromley. It aims to bring the community together as one, to provide a safe haven for families and the youth to grow and develop, and to nurture a generation of active Muslim role models to the society within which we live.

Our vision is one whereby people of different race, religion and culture can reside together in peace, harmony, and conformity with one another. We aim to engage with people of different faiths and backgrounds, with the aspiration of living in contentment with our neighbours and to increase mutual understanding. We hope that Bromley and the people of our Borough will be an example of this.

By treading in the footsteps of the Prophets (peace be upon them all), Al-Emaan Centre is founded upon the knowledge that change happens from within, and with the help of Allah can thereafter begin to spread, from individual to individual, community to community.

COMMUNITY

A chance for the ladies in the community to meet and benefit from a spiritually elevating discussion, and the good company of one another.

A chance to increase and strengthen the social network of the retired within the community. Open to all seniors of any background residing in any locality, with both ladies and gentleman welcome to attend.

AEC hosts regular mother and child group to help young parents and children socialise with one another, working closely with the local Little Crescents group, and with the Bromley 3 Faith Group.

AEC is partnering with local supermarkets in an attempt to deliver surplus food bank supplies to the homeless and refugees.

INTERFAITH

After a series of informal discussions in 2016 between members of the three Abrahamic (Jewish, Christian and Islamic) faiths, and with a collective interest in sharing experiences and knowledge of our beliefs and practices, the Bromley Three Faiths Group was formed. The primary aim of the group is to promote greater understanding and increase knowledge of the faiths through joint participation in various faith based activities. Such an activity includes the popular 3 Faith Dialogue, where individuals seek to learn about each others’ faiths in an amicable and educational environment.

Established in 2017, the annual Peace walk has grown from strength to strength, allowing members of the different faiths and the public to come together in the spirit of peace & harmony, highlighting our commonalities.

AEC continues to work with B3FG to help the assimilation of refugees in Lewisham. AEC has been instrumental in raising funds and goods to help the families settle in.

MARRIAGE

If you are looking to enquire about the prospect of holding your Islamic marriage (nikah) at the mosque, please complete our request form below to request a booking form and accompanied Nikah policy.

OUTREACH

AEC volunteers work closely with local schools and scout groups in the community to promote understanding and education by conducting workshops, visits and mosque tours to discuss Islam within the classroom or mosque setting. This is proving to be very popular, and several schools have requested a regular arrangement. Please feel free to email us on info@al-emaan.org.uk to arrange your visit at the mosque or at your local organisation.

Drawing together leaders throughout the borough of Bromley, we are privileged to be part of this group which seeks to enhance the safety and well-being of residents in the area

We have collaborated with a national initiative organised by the Muslim Council of Britain to open the doors of the mosque to the wider public to showcase what goes on inside our centre. Islamic Calligraphy, Islamic Artefacts and the rituals of prayer are some of the topics highlighted

With several professionals linked to Al-Emaan Centre, we thought we would share the knowledge and expertise of several career paths in an informative and engaging day, open to the public

This is an invitation to any of the local residents and neighbours to experience and share the ritual breaking of the fast during the holy month of Ramadan

SELKCOM – As part of the South East London & Kent Council of Mosques, AEC regularly engages in activities that further the vision of mosques in benefiting their respective communities and societies on a local level

To ensure regular activities, and to make this Centre as successful as possible, it will need sustained support.
