Hundreds of people will gather at a Glasgow City Centre church later to pray for the six people who died in yesterday’s bin lorry crash.
Eight others were injured when the vehicle veered out of control and mounted the pavement in an area full of Christmas shoppers.
A service is being held St George’s Tron which is just a short walk away from the crash site.
Revd Alastair Duncan will lead the prayers.
Police are now investigating the accident in George Square which was packed with families enjoying the annual winter carnival.
Chief Inspector Mark Sutherland from Police Scotland said last night: “We are currently working with our other agencies to establish exactly what happened.
“It’s important that we do a thorough investigation to establish the full circumstances.
“It’s important that we take all the necessary steps to do it as quickly as we can so that we get the answers for the families and get their loved ones back to them as quick as we can.”
Dozens of floral tributes have been placed at the scene.
National Director for the Evangelical Alliance in Scotland, Fred Drummond, told Premier city churches were pulling together.
He said: “Chaplains, the support workers, everybody who’s involved in getting alongside people when tragedy actually hits.
“And just standing shoulder to shoulder with people and weeping with those who are weeping which I think is just part of the Christian ministry.”
Bishop of Glasgow and Galloway, the Rt Revd Dr Gregor Duncan, said those involved will need time to come to terms with what’s happened: “They need space to reflect, to think, to make this part of their own story and the city’s story.
“So, time and care and quiet I think and if need be professional help of course.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
