Overall there seemed to be 4 key themes emerging from the workshops:

  • Mosques need to be more than just places of ritual worship
  • Improvement in the delivery aspect of the sermons and education to make them more accessible and relevant to young British Muslims
  • Greater involvement of the Muslim community
  • Greater interaction with the wider community, including opening up the mosque, engaging in inter-faith dialogue and responding to the media.
