Early Days

The Whitley Bay Islamic Cultural Centre is a charitable organisation based in Whitley Bay, North Tyneside and was established in 1999 by the Mercy of Allah (SWT). We initially started with just 5 pupils. Today, Alhamdulillah!, we have over 40 students currently studying in our centre and that figure is continuously growing.

What We Provide

The Centre provides many activities for Muslims and non-Muslims. In it's attempt to present Islam to the wider society, the Centre engages in various activities. These include providing Islamic literature, organising open days, study groups, conferences and social support where necessary. We continuosly strive to educate and inform our local community about the true teachings of Islam. We are also intermittently trying to keep our services according to the demands of our locals with their best interests in mind.

Our services are open to all, Muslims and non-Muslims alike. We have a small library with a collection of literature which is open for use by anyone. We also have computer systems in our Cultural Centre with high-speed internet access which can be used by the public for research or study purposes.

We have achieved numerous awards from different institutions and as a result our success stories appeared in the local press. The success we are enjoying now only came about as a result of all the hard work our members of staff and everyone behind WBICC put in. We are also grateful to our local community for the support they showed us in making WBICC what it is today.

Future Goals

We at the Whitley Bay Islamic Cultural Centre wish to use this success as a base for our future goals. Our future goals include:

  • Better understanding of Islamic Affairs throughout the community
  • Further immerse ourselves in collaborating with different cultures, religions and communities
  • Provide extensive activities for various interests and hobbies
  • Extensive Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence) lessons
  • Hadith sessions

In the future, Insha'Allah (if Allah wills), we aim to establish ourselves as a successful, collaborative and diverse community centre as well as an Islamic foundation by which we can serve and benefit our community as a whole.
