Westminster Cathedral will hold a special vigil on March 2 to bring together the London-based New Zealand community in the wake of Tuesday's devastating Christchurch quake.

Around 1500 New Zealanders are expected to attend the service at which New Zealand High Commissioner Derek Leask will read a message from Prime Minister John Key and there will be a waiata from the London Maori club, Ngati Ranana.

The High Commission is working with others over arrangements for a Christchurch Earthquake Memorial Service at a later date.
