Prayers said for murdered Joanna
Prayers are being said to remember Joanna Yeates - a year since she was murdered by her neighbour Vincent Tabak.
The landscape architect was last seen alive on the night of December 17, 2010 in Clifton, Bristol, and eight days later her body was found on a snowy verge three miles away.
Next door neighbour Tabak, 33, a Dutch engineer, was convicted of the 25-year-old's murder in October and jailed for life. He will serve a minimum of 20 years behind bars.
During his trial at Bristol Crown Court, the jury heard he strangled Miss Yeates in a violent confrontation at the flat she shared with boyfriend Greg Reardon in Canynge Road, Clifton.
He then spun a web of lies and deceit to cover his tracks - taking her body back to his flat, then going shopping in Asda with the body in his car boot. Within an hour he had dumped her partially clothed corpse on the verge, and just 24 hours later was drinking champagne with friends.
To remember Miss Yeates, the local church will be open and there will be the opportunity for quiet reflection, prayers, an opportunity to light a candle in her memory and write in a condolence card that will be sent to her family.
Rev Paul Langham, from Christ Church Clifton, said: "Anybody in the community or anybody else who'd like to come in and be quiet, perhaps light a candle in Jo's memory. We also have a card for her parents if people would like to sign that.
"It's just a small way of marking this dreadful day in our community's history."
Miss Yeates's body was found by dog walkers on Christmas morning in Failand, North Somerset.
Earlier this week, Mr Reardon spoke of his pain at losing the love of his life and said they would probably have married one day. And in a recent interview, Miss Yeates's father David said he and his family continued to struggle with their loss.
