A Memorial Service for Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and Ambassador Lindiwe Mabusa will be held at St Martin-in-the-Fields (Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 4JH) on Monday 21st February, 2.00 pm. 

The service, which is being organised with the South African High Commission, will include tributes to the Archbishop Emeritus and the Ambassador from those who knew them, an Address from Revd Dr. Sam Wells, Vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields, personal memories from Clive Conway, Chair of Tutu Foundation UK, and music from St Martin's Voices. Refreshments at South Africa House will follow the service.

The late Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was a global icon who advocated for peace, justice, and human rights throughout the world and he dedicated his life to the noble causes of freedom, democracy, and service to humanity, among others. 

We must encourage humanity to emulate the values and the teachings of the late Archbishop Tutu; and strive to become exceptional human beings of great moral stature. We will always remember the Arch for his jovial demeanour.

May we celebrate his life and spread his message of equality and peace.
