A Catholic church in the UK has been sold to the Muslim community. St Peter's Catholic church in Cobridge will become the Madina Mosque.
The site was put on sale following a dramatic decline in the number of parishioners. A spokeswoman for the archdiocese declared that "the parish of Cobridge has a long history, but in recent times the number of Catholics in the area has shrunk to such an extent that those attending Mass at St. Peter's were simply no longer able to maintain a priest and the church buildings".
Islam is replacing Christianity as first religion everywhere in Europe.
