About Us

The Wycombe Islamic Society, WISE, is a registered charity which was established in 1991 to provide beneficial Islamic knowledge and services to the local community.It is based in High Wycombe, a small town centrally located between two major cities, London and Oxford. High Wycombe itself has a population of around 92,000 of which Muslims constitute approximately 11,000.

WISE is currently made up of a representative mix of the society in which we live. The trustees and participants, all of whom are volunteers, range from students to company directors.

WISE organise a range of activities to meet the diverse need of the local community:

  • As well as the spiritual activities, such as daily congregational prayers Centre, WISE offers religious education, 11+ tuition, Arabic classes, and lectures on a variety of topics.

  • For those who like to test out their skills and fitness, they can try their chance at volleyball, table tennis, and football. For the ladies, a secure environment is provided at the Wycombe Badminton Centre or Highcrest School.

  • There are also Eid parties and trips for the kids (and for the not-so-grown-ups!), food and clothes bazaars for the women, and not to forget the mouth-watering BBQ extravaganza held in the summer.

  • The bookworms can peruse the wide selection of material available at the WISE bookshop, and the technically minded can log on to the internet-ready PCs at the WISE centre.

There should be something for everyone! However, if there's still something missing (halal of course!), then let us know and we will try our best to arrange it insha'Allah.
