Community Services

CICT Services are continually developed with a focus on transforming lives, building excellence, encouraging success for all in this world and the next, promoting the correct Islamic teachings, spreading peace and cooperation, and meeting the needs of the local community.

To this end, unlike many other Masjids and community organisations, CICT remains open all day, offering the five daily congregational prayers, including the Friday Prayers and the two Eid prayers, and providing those services that our community demands, with a commitment to developing our existing provision.

Keeping our community at the heart of everything we do at CICT, we are actively engaged in advising Croydon Council and other local community service providers on issues pertaining to Islam and Muslims. We also provide marriage services, counselling and advice, mentoring, career guidance, personal advice, conflict resolution, youth services, women’s’ services and many other community based support services.

CICT’s youth initiative, Young Companions, has been successful in meeting the needs of young people and their parents in the community, and we aim to develop this initiative to encourage a greater mix of Muslim and non-Muslim youth to integrate and to develop a better understanding of one another.
