Vigil for Christchurch

A vigil will be held Sunday 17 March - 12pm at the Church Steps, to remember those caught up in the horrific events in Christchurch.

People are welcome to bring flowers or messages of support, as we stand together as a community.

After the vigil, the Nelson Whakatu Muslim Association invites all to walk to the Queen's Garden where they will hold a Janazah (funeral) prayer in the open air. 

Nelson's Multicultural society have suggested women wear a head scarf in support, as our Prime Minister did today when she visited those affected by this tragedy.
