Vigils in the city

Tue, 19/03/2019 - 12:27pm -- charlotte.farrell


A number of vigils are being planned in the city to remember those who have been killed or injured in the attack in the two mosques, in Stanwell and in Utrecht.  It is also an opportunity to remember all those killed or injured elsewhere in the world in similar violence.

Everyone is invited and welcome to join the vigils. 

Wednesday 20 March 2019

6pm to 7pm - Vigil at Hove Methodist Church

The city’s Interfaith Contact Group invites all communities to join a peace vigil, to demonstrate our shared belief that attacks of terror will not be tolerated in our city, and beyond.  All are invited to come together and show our support and unity with the Muslim community.  

Meet at: Hove Methodist Church, Portland Road, Hove. BN3 5DR.


One Voice Vigil: Thursday 21 March 2018

4:30 pm – Outside Hove Town Hall (meet at Jugglers or under the flag)

All are welcome to join One Voice’s vigil to remember all those killed or injured in Christchurch last Friday, Stanwell over the weekend and elsewhere in the world in acts of similar violence.


Our local Imams, executive committee members on the city’s Racial Harassment Forum, Sussex Jewish Representative Council, and local community leaders will be speaking briefly.  We will also observe a minute’s silence.  Please join One Voice to stand together in solidarity and send a clear message that we do not accept violence against innocent people and counter the threat from far right as well as all other forms of terrorism.
