Benevolence’s Convert programs provide guidance and support to new Muslims, long-term converts and those exploring Islam or thinking about converting. We aim to help guide those wanting to learn about Islam, and support converts in developing and maintaining a sustainable faith practice. We provide introductory classes, consultations and drop-ins, and social gatherings to support you at all stages of your faith journey.

Workshops & short courses

Benevolence offers classes on Islamic beliefs and practices including Islam 101, How to Pray and Preparing for Ramadan. These classes explore the spiritual  dimensions of Islamic practice in addition to the physical rituals. Sessions are conducted in a small group environment, encouraging interaction and active participation.

Convert catch-ups

Our Convert Catch-Up events invite converts to Islam, those exploring Islam and their family, friends, or partners to gather, celebrate and socialise. These events include Eid lunches, iftars (fast-breaking meals) and group Mosque tours. Converts can share experiences, gain support and build a community with others on their convert journey.

Convert Events Schedule – Term 2 2024
