Thousands of people across the UK took a knee at 6pm on Wednesday evening in peaceful protest following the death of George Floyd.
The display, organised by the charity Stand Up To Racism, is the latest from the Black Lives Matter movement since the black 46-year-old died in US police custody on 25th May.
Rev Alan Green told the PA news agency he knelt outside his Church of St John in Bethnal Green, east London, in “solidarity and commitment” to defeating racism in society.
“By standing together, across ethnicities, cultures and identities, we affirm our common opposition to racists and prevent fragmentation between different sections of our communities,” Mr Green added.
Along with demonstrations in public spaces, some of which occurred as part of marches in London, Belfast and other cities, many of those taking part knelt on their front doorstep.
Taking a knee has regularly been used as a peaceful protest against racial inequality since American football player Colin Kaepernick began doing so during the US national anthem at the start of matches in 2016.
Rev Alan Green told Premier at the beginning of lockdown that he was worried about the message of small funerals not reaching many people in the BAME community, with many large funerals still being held in his area, risking a spread of Covid-19.
He said at the time that local undertakers "are having real difficulty in explaining to some religious groups that they cannot have their standard, very long service and that they cannot bring everyone they wish to that service. It's a real problem when it's not just the bereaved family but it is also a minister who is insisting that this must continue - and that really has to change."
