About Our Mosque

Whilst serving a diverse congregation, the Old Kent Road Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre is home to London’s oldest Nigerian Muslim community.
The Muslim Association of Nigeria UK (MAN UK) informally started in the early 1960s with a transient community of Nigerians coming to London to study. Initially staying only for short periods of time, it was not until the 1980s when a more permanent community started to develop. It took a further 10 years before MAN UK acquired our first place of worship in 1993 and established the Old Kent Road Mosque.
We are a thriving community hub in the heart of South London. Our congregation members come from different walks of life and our doors are open to all. We truly appreciate the diversity of our people who each enrich the community spirit of our mosque. We promote spiritual development, community engagement and mutual respect for all.

Our Story

Since its inception, MAN UK’s activities had been conducted from the London Central Mosque, The Nigeria High Commission and the East London Mosque.
In 1989 a committee was set up under the chairmanship of the late Alhaji Sadudeen Olasheni Daniju to address the issue of raising funds to acquire a befitting property for the Association and in 1993 after many rounds of fundraising, the Association acquired and renovated a former pub in Southwark, where the Old Kent Road Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre has been established and located to this day.


Our Mission

The Muslim Association of Nigeria UK aims to support Muslims in the UK, providing a community space to reach out and help the most vulnerable.
This is achieved through the variety of services offered by the Old Kent Road Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre, which range from providing adequate prayer facilities for both men and women; advice sessions on legal, housing and health matters; community engagement and educational opportunities; as well as mental health and well-being support and counselling.
Above all, it provides a safe place where Muslims can cultivate their faith while integrating into London’s multi-faith and multi-ethnic environment.

Beyond A Prayer Space!

The Muslim community anywhere is incomplete without a shared space of worship. That was what prompted the Nigerian Muslim community in the UK to purchase a 1919-built derelict pub at 365 Old Kent Road, London, SE1 5JH, in 1993, refurbished and converted it into a mosque to establish London’s oldest Nigerian Muslim community mosque about 30 years ago.
