Mill Road in Lockdown – Cambridge Central Mosque

How is the lockdown affecting our Muslim community? Our Web-Editor receives email updates and thought it would be good to share these with the whole Mill Road ‘Community of Communities’.


The lockdown required the Mosque to close for prayer from the middle of March. After ten years of hard work to make the project for a new mosque in Cambridge a reality, Muslims and all Mill Roaders were been saddened to see it close, albeit temporarily.

Look, however at what a vibrant team of volunteers is doing to keep Cambridge Central Mosque at the living heart of Cambridge Muslim life, and serving the whole community.


Listen to the adhan, Qur’an recitations, lectures, and much more as they’re happening, on the Mosque’s Live Media page.

As always, there is more on Cambridge Central Mosque’s YouTube Channel and Facebook page.

Feeding the community

It will come as no surprise that, throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan, the Muslim community have been vigorous in efforts to help the whole community: Critical Care Unit at Papworth Hospital; Jimmie’s Homeless Shelter; vulnerable families & individuals; Iftar Supplies to Addenbrooke’s.

For more details, see pages 2 & 3 of the Ramadan Newsletter.

I have direct, good experience of this kindness and concern for the whole local community, as I’ve been helped with free deliveries of provisions as requested, promptly and efficiently, together with ready heated meals at very reasonable prices, from Abdul Arain & family at AL-AMIN Store in Mill Road.
