The Bishop of Doncaster, the Rt Revd Cyril Ashton, will conduct the parish Ash Wednesday Service in Great Snaith Priory, Yorkshire, tonight. The site of this morning's rail accident lies within the Great Snaith parochial boundaries.
Great Heck Church - within 200 yards of the site of the accident - will remain open for the next two days for visitors to the scene and anyone else who needs it.
Local Vicar, Revd Cyril Roberts, paid tribute to the work of the emergency services and said that local people had responded immediately when the crash happened.
Clergy from the area have been involved in pastoral care at the scene and in local hospitals.
