Jersey Methodist church to become Muslim mosque

A former Methodist church in Jersey is to become a Mosque.

The island's Muslim community, which has been using the building for prayers on a temporary basis, bought the Aquila Methodist Church in St Helier for £425,000.

The building, which dates back to the 19th Century, was previously owned by the Wavell family.

Dr Safar Jamali said other spiritual leaders in Jersey had supported the purchase.
