The Crown had requested the change as the original date clashed with the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, a court minute released on Thursday says.
The accused, Brenton Harrison Tarrant, was not present in the Christchurch High Court for the last hearing on August 15. Justice Cameron Mander confirmed, however, the Crown was in discussions to push Tarrant's original May 4 trial date back by up to four weeks.
At the High Court last month, Tarrant was remanded to a pre-trial callover on October 3.
Tarrant faces 51 charges of murder, 40 of attempted murder and one charge under the Terrorism Suppression Act, following the March massacre at two mosques in Christchurch.
