Conversion included that of MP Edward Montagu, who was the son of the MP Sir Edward Wortley Montagu – also British Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire and great grandson of Edward Montagu, the first Earl of Sandwich.

New Beginnings

Our Mission

New Beginnings aims to create a welcoming, non-judgemental environments and spaces that nurture a sound and authentic experience of Islam.

New Beginnings was formed in 2020 after recognising the need to provide support, companionship and education for those who have accepted Islam from other faiths or no faith.

We strive to meet these needs in a way that truly appreciates a person’s circumstances, whilst understanding the importance of preserving one’s individual and cultural identity.
