SOMER was formed by a small group of families to cater for the Muslim community in Melbourne’s South Eastern region, irrespective of their ethnic origin. After extensive fundraising efforts and donations mainly from Saudi Arabia, South Africa and the community, ISOMER was able to purchase the Lysterfield property and build the mosque. The mosque was opened in 1986 and has since been the foundation of the community.
Lysterfield Mosque Offer the following services:
- Regular Daily Prayers
- Friday Prayer
- Sunday School
- Quran Classes
- Janaza Services
- Commmunity Hall Hire
- Retirement Home
- Ladies Prayer Facilities
- Eid Prayers
In 1992, we were awarded a government grant that enabled us to build the ISOMER Retirement Home (IRH), which commenced operations in 1994.
Whilst IRH was established to cater for the special needs of Muslims, it is open to individuals from all religious and cultural background.
Under the current COM ISOMER is uplifting the IRH and Mosque and is putting in place plans to expand and build additional community facilities that will meet the growing and changing needs of the community.
Extensive fundraising efforts are underway, and member and community support is welcomed.
