A prayer service is to be held seven days on from the devastating explosion at the Bosley wood flour mill that killed four people.
The service will take place today at St Mary the Virgin Church in the Cheshire village between 9am and 10am, a week on from the tragedy that "rocked" a community.
Three bodies have been recovered in the search of the wreckage at the Wood Treatment Limited plant in Cheshire.
Derek Moore, 62, has been identified as one of the victims.
A prayer notice said: "It will be a chance for us to pray for our community and the families of those affected, an opportunity to share and support one another, and a time to reflect on the tragic events of the past week."
A body found in the search for four workers killed in the Bosley mill blast has been identified as Derek Moore.

A statement from Cheshire Police said further forensic tests are still needed but the families have been informed.
Rescue crews are "very confident" they know the location of the fourth victim of the Bosley mill blast.
Chief fire officer for Cheshire Paul Hancock said the removal of three structures had now opened up two points of access.
He added he was hopeful a combination of tunnelling through and excavation of the rubble would resolve the search and recovery operation today.
The Bosley mill incident which has killed at least three people is the worst rescue crews have seen for a decade.
Paul Hitchen, from Urban Search and Rescue, said: "The scale of the incident is unprecedented in this country in the last 10 years.
"It's extremely dangerous and arduous for the rescuers. There's a massive amount of metal, concrete and brickwork which we need to move to continue the search.
"The priority is the rescue of the casualties. It's not possible to say yet when we will find the fourth body."
