Many local places of worship are offering virtual services, reflections and guidance. We have listed a few, but please check your local faith organisation's website or social media page for further details on virtual services and support available.

Ramadan

The current coronavirus pandemic may have an impact on who should be fasting and how Iftar or prayers take place. See our advice on observing Ramadan during the coronavirus pandemic.

Ramadan calendar

See all the key 2020 Ramadan dates on the East London Mosque & London Muslim Centre website.

Iftar

Open iftar (supported by London Mayor) has many options of sharing your iftar with others whilst social distancing, as well as:

  • virtual guest speakers
  • Athaan (watch the call to prayer live)
  • fundraise

Prayer

Weekly worship services now on air

BBC local radio is helping to support faith communities unable to visit places of worship due to the current coronavirus outbreak.

  • Muslim reflections are now on air every Friday at 5.50am.
  • Christian service is being broadcast every Sunday at 8am.

We will keep you updated as we become aware of other similar initiatives to help support our faith communities at this time.
