Introduction to GLMCC
This character filled and colourful local landmark first opened its doors as the 'Jamia Masjid and Muslim Community Centre', administered by Marakazi Jamiat Ahle Hadith UK. This was a time when an unsettled, fledgling Muslim community urgently required a social and spiritual centre for gatherings, festivals, religious education and worship.
Significantly this joyous opening marked the beginning of the Mosque's neighbourly pursuits to act as an interface with the wider community, to help people improve their understanding of Islam and to contribute towards the betterment and prosperity of the people of Small Heath.
Situated in the heart of Birmingham in a thriving community that is diverse in ethnicity and rich in culture, the Mosque has firmly established itself as a leading Mosque and as a result it managed to reach the runners up final for UK Model Mosque Award in 2007.
In 2008 Green Lane Masjid & Community Centre became an independent charity.
