SIF Annual General Meeting

The AGM was held on 9th September and very well attended, the best for many years. Mashallah it was gratifying to see so many brothers turn out to celebrate the year's successes and to offer their thanks and appreciation to the Trustees and outgoing committee for their work over the past year. To view the presentation and accounts click on the links below. We hope to have an Annual Report to give out soon, especially for those unable to attend the meeting, those without the necessary IT expertise to view the files below and for external stakeholders. In the future the report will most likely replace the Annual Meeting.

Shropshire Islamic Foundation is a registered Islamic charity. It incorporates the Telford Central Mosque (King St), Tan Bank Mosque, Telford Islamic Academy and STUWA*.

The Foundation has its headquarters in the West Midland’s town of Telford, within the scenic county of Shropshire. Telford is 48 kilometres west of Birmingham.

Tan bank mosque, the first mosque in Telford, had over the years become too small for our growing congregation and offered no scope for expansion or additional space for ladies. For a number of years we have been working very hard to convert a large complex of buildings at King Street, Wellington into a state-of-the-art Mosque. Our vision will see over 900 Muslims men praying in a spacious and comfortable Mosque. The new facilities also include a 250 + area designated for ladies. Both are partially in use, awaiting heating, lighting, dome and ceiling work to be finished off over the next few months.

When phase 1 is finished, there will be prayer space for over 1100 men and ladies, a single site for boys and girls madrassa, social, education, and leisure classes. Phase two will include funeral, sports and events facilities. This is our vision.

We appeal to you for your help. Donate now, and help us build a house of Allah, a noble project, building a future for Muslims and the wider community.
