The Christchurch Invitation - Together for peace

Doing three simple actions can help overcome division and build a more peaceful, kinder community.

The Christchurch Invitation is a global call for people to come together and build a more peaceful society.

It is a joint message from the Imams of the two mosques in Christchurch that were attacked on 15 March 2019.

The Christchurch Invitation is informed by three calls to peace the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) promoted when he migrated from Mecca to Madinah to help people in dispute .

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) identified three simple actions everyone can do to create a kinder and more compassionate community – spread peace, reconnect with others and the world around us, and feed the hungry.

By doing these simple actions every day and standing up for others, we can create a kinder and more compassionate community.

Some ideas for bringing these values to life


  • Spend some special time with family.
  • Call or catch up with someone you haven’t seen in a while.
  • Engage with nature, for example walk, bike ride or meditate.
  • Contact someone you’re missing or worried about and let them know you care.

Spread peace:

  • Promote qualities such as mercy, love and welcoming.
  • Take time to recognise each other, with a smile and hand on the heart.
  • Greet others with peace (Try: As-salaam alaykum: peace be upon you. Response: Wa alaykum as-salaam: and upon you be peace).

Feed others:

  • Invite your neighbours over to share a meal.
  • Eat together as a family.
  • Share morning tea or lunch with colleagues or classmates.
  • Donate or give food to those in need.
