Bristol Muslim Cultural Society (BMCS) was established in 1986 and is one of the oldest voluntary sector non-profit making organisations in the City. We are based in Easton, at the heart of a culturally diverse inner city area of Bristol.
Our aim is to empower the Muslim community in Bristol and the surrounding area to further the economic (employment, enterprise, training) educational, recreational, cultural and social needs of the Muslim community, while encouraging their active participation in mainstream society, and provide support to interested stakeholders.
As part of Islam Awareness Week that ran from 17th March to 24th March, Bristol Muslim Cultural Societies young volunteers and youth committee from Bristol produced a short film entitled "What Islam Means to Me" to challenge some of the stereotypes around Islam and Muslims.
Bristol Muslims Make History at Lord Mayors Civic Ceremony
The Lord Mayor’s Annual Civic Service has been taking place for hundreds of years at the Lord Mayors Chapel in College Green, Bristol. The Chapel itself is around 800 years old. In order to reflect the faith of the current Lord Mayor of Bristol, (Councillor Faruk Choudhury), this year it was decided to include a contribution from the Muslim community.
