A National Remembrance Service for the victims of the Christchurch mosques terrorist attack, and all those affected by it, will be held at 10am this Friday 29 March.
The service, Ko Tātou, Tātou We Are One, will be held in North Hagley Park, jointly led by the city of Christchurch, the Government of New Zealand, Ngāi Tahu and the Muslim community.
It will be an opportunity for people to come together in unity, to show compassion, love and support for all our communities, and the value we place on being an inclusive and diverse country.
