Timing for today's commemorations around New Zealand have been confirmed and thousands are expected to reflect on the Christchurch mosque attacks a week ago.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will begin formal proceedings with a statement at 1.25pm.
At 1.30pm an Islamic call to prayer will sound at all mosques, as well as on TV and radio.
Two minutes' silence will be marked 1.30pm until 1.32pm.
