The YCA Cultural Centre has re-opened for the daily congregational prayers, including  Jumu'ah for both brothers and sisters.  

Throughout the pandemic, we’ve always had the safety of our staff and masjid attendees as our number one priority, and we’ve carefully followed all government guidance. So, following the recent announcements, I wanted to write to you with an update.

From Friday 10th December 2021, all masjid attendees must abide by the following rules:

✅ A face mask/covering must be worn before entering the YCA Cultural Centre (unless exempt)

✅ Sign in upon entry

✅ Clean your hands with hand sanitiser provided

✅ If possible, bring your own prayer mat

❌ Do NOT shake hands or hug others

❌ Avoid crowding upon entrance and exit

⚠️ Do not attend if you are unwell or have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been instructed by the NHS to self-isolate. ⚠️

🅿️ Please park sensibly and considerately, especially on Fridays. 

Our staff are working very hard to keep you and your family safe. In return, we ask everyone to please be kind, patient and respectful.

Jazakum Allah Khair.
