THE Bishop of Chichester will lead prayers at a memorial service for victims of the Shoreham Air Show tragedy.

The Right Reverend Dr Martin Warner will also recognise the role carried out by the emergency services who responded to the tragedy in August.

Dr Warner said: ‘This will be an important moment for so many people who were caught up in the sudden and tragic events of that Saturday in Shoreham. As well as joining in prayerful support for the bereaved and injured we will also remember the remarkable courage showed by so many on the day as they extended human kindness and support to one another.’

The readings include The Comfort and Sweetness of Peace and A Letter from Heaven. They will be given by family members.

Names of the 11 people who died will be read out ahead of a minute’s silence at 1.22pm, the time of the crash.

The service is at Lancing College Chapel on Sunday, November 22. Admittance to the memorial service has had to be restricted and is by invitation.
