The Islamic Cultural Centre is a vibrant and dynamic centre with activities for everyone, and welcomes people of all ages, nationalities, madhabs (schools of thought), and level of knowledge and practice. We have also engaged with the wider community through their work with the local schools, the Altrincham Interfaith Group (of which they are a founding member) and with Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council.
St David's Mission Church on Grove Lane lay within the parish of Christ Church, Timperley. The decision was made in 1914 to erect a temporary church and that the district should become a separate parish later. Plans were drawn up and it was estimated that a church for 250 people could be built for £600. Local architect and councillor John MacNamara gave £250 and one acre of land from his estate for the church but it never became a parish on its own.
In July 2003 the Altrincham Muslim Association bought the former St David?s Church on Grove Lane, Hale which has since been operating as the Islamic Cultural Centre. The AMA was formally established in September 1995 with the objective of setting up a Masjid (mosque) and Islamic Cultural Centre in Altrincham to serve the spiritual, educational, social and recreational needs of the Muslim community in the Altrincham area and in the outlying areas of Lymm, Mobberley, Bucklow Hill, Mere and Knutsford.
