A West Sussex priest, found dead in woodland, was 'much-loved' and his death is a 'profound blow"'to the community, a bishop said.
Rev Christopher Loveless, of St Margaret's Church in Warnham, was found hanged in woodland near his home.
The 53-year-old is said to have been "struggling with stress" at the time of his death. Police said there were no suspicious circumstances.
Bishop of Horsham Mark Sowerby paid tribute to the priest as tearful parishioners attended Sunday service.
He said: "It is impossible for me to put into words the loss this represents to his family, his parents and all of us. Christopher was a talented, experienced parish priest, much-loved in this parish where he had served since 1999.
"His sudden death comes as a profound blow, not only to his family but to many present who loved and admired him and all who benefited from his gentle, pastoral care."
