The Siri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara in Crawley has been serving the Sikh community for over 20 years in its present location in Spencers Road.
Following the immigration movement of the 60’s and 70’s the UK saw an influx of hardworking Sikh men looking for employment. Due to its proximity to Gatwick Airport, the new town of Crawley became home to a large number of Sikh men. After working in Crawley and saving enough money these men called their families over to join them and began a long process of establishing themselves within British life.
As a part of the Sikh community in India these families were very involved in practicing the Sikh faith. It was with these principles and desires to continue to practice the Sikh faith that led them to hire the Montefiore Hall in Three Bridges on a weekly basis for the sangat. They then established the first dedicated Sikh Gurdwara in Crawley in 1981 on the current site in Spencers road.
As the Sikh community has grown the Gurdwara needs to keep pace with the change and needs of the community. Plans have been designed and approved to refresh the current site and build a new Gurdwara for the community.
We call upon not only the Sikh community in Crawley but all people from around the world to help fundraise so we can fulfil the vision of the new Siri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara in Crawley.
