We have seen the Muslim community grow in our region and realise they must have a mosque to conduct their religion and continue their community life. We have also had the opportunity to meet many of the local Islamic faith community and have come to know they enhance our city and particularly the faith and ethical values in our community.Anglican Diocese Bishop Rt Rev’d Andrew Curnow
