I am writing on behalf of Trowbridge Mosque Management Committee to invite you to our Mosque open day on 28th Oct from 2pm to 4pm. An opportunity for community engagement and to ask questions and get to know the Muslim community and enjoy a cup of tea/coffee or Moroccan Tea.
It is a great opportunity for people from different faiths or no faith’s backgrounds to get to know the Muslim community from different racial and social backgrounds. The timetable is as per below:
The encounter will open the doors for us all to learn more about Islam and the Muslim community. This will also help remove any misconceptions some members of the community may hold.
Dress Code for visiting the Mosque.
Women are required to wear a long skirt, or trousers with a full sleeves top. Women also need to cover their head upon entering the Mosque. Head Scarves are available at the Mosque.
Men don’t need to cover their head but are required to dress modestly. Trousers and a shirt or tee shirt would be appropriate but not shorts.
The dress code is not unique to the mosques. Those of you who have visited St Mark’s Basilica (Catholic Church) will be aware that at the entrance men are told to remove hats and that their shorts/trousers should at least reach their knees. Women are told to cover their head, shoulders, and upper legs.
Everyone is respectfully requested to remove shoes before entering the Mosque. There is a shoe rack in the entrance.
Please forward this invitation to friends, family, faith places and to your colleagues living in and around Trowbridge.
We look forward to welcoming you.
