History Of Gravesend Central Mosque

Gravesend & Dartford Muslim Association (GDMA)

Muslims first settled in the Gravesend and Dartford area in the early 1960s. The early migrants were predominantly young men who came to England in search of a better life. Their families joined them and the Muslim community began to grow.

Initially,Muslims in Gravesend prayed in each other’s houses, and would hire halls for Taraweeh and Eid Prayers. Several forward-thinking men led by Dr Mufti started the Gravesend & Dartford Muslim Association in 1970, their main aim was to have a place of worship to pray, learn their religion and come close to their creator.


It is their self-sacrifice and vision that made it easier for future generations.  We pray that ALLAH SWT accepts the efforts of all these people, some of whom have left this temporary world. We pray that ALLAH SWT gives them the reward for all their hard work and dedication without whom the Association would not exist today.


The local community continued to grow and collect funds for their own premises. After a lengthy search, in 1992, the opportunity arose to purchase an old Public house (Albion Arms). The local community raised the money to convert this Public House into a place of worship – the Gravesend Central Mosque


Since then, there have been a number of extensions and modifications. The Mosque currently has space to accommodate approximately 500 worshippers, including a dedicated ladies prayer room. There are wudu facilities as well as Ghusl facilities on site.
