Message of Condolence
As leaders of Abrahamic faith communities we come together to offer our deepest and most heartfelt condolences to all those who have been victimised and traumatised by this evil attack on our Muslim community in Christchurch. For all of us, every single life is a creation of God, and is sacred, and in that spirit, we extend our hand to offer support and solidarity to all Muslims in the country.
We also pray that such hate will cease, and that out of this horrific tragedy, we can help build greater understanding, respect for humanity, and a more harmonious nation that embraces our diversity.
Anglican Bishop of Auckland, Ross Bay
