Guru Nanak Gurdwara Sahib Walsall. When it opened, Guru Nanak Gurdwara Sahib was the first Gurdwara in Walsall. The Gurdwara (meaning the House of God) is the Sikh place of worship. The Guru Nanak Gurdwara Sahib is open to everyone because in Sikhism everyone is equal. This equality is shown by everyone sitting together in the Diwan hall and Langar hall. When coming to the Gurdwara, please ensure a modest dress code is observed. Additionally, everyone is required to take off their shoes upon entering the Gurdwara and to keep their head covered at all times whilst in the Gurdwara. We’ve listed some basic etiquette rules along with more information about the Gurdwara.
Our vision is to make a positive impact upon the Sikh community in Walsall by making the Gurdwara Sahib a focal point for the community where all individuals and families can gather and flourish in Sikhism and seek Guru Ji’s blessings in their lives. Guru Nanak Gurdwara is actively involved in bringing the Sikh community together and striving to be not only a place of worship, but a place where a Sikh’s social, cultural and ethnic needs may also be fulfilled.
We strongly believe that in order for any culture to maintain its identity, it is important to impart the knowledge of our language and history to our children. In keeping with this spirit, the Gurudwara Sahib holds Punjabi and Gurmat classes every weekend. We strongly encourage all members of the congregation to enrol their children in these classes.
These are some of the services and activities provided by the Gurdwara:

Individuals from all faiths and backgrounds are welcome and we hope you will visit our friendly Gurdwara Sahib very soon.
