Prayers for Peaches Geldof and her family will be said at a church near her home in Wrotham today.
The 25-year-old was found dead at her house in the village in mystery circumstances on Monday afternoon.
Parishioners at St George's Church will gather to pay tribute to the socialite, who lived with her husband Tom Cohen and their two young sons, Astala and Phaedra.
The Reverend Canon Brenda Hurd said: "Although I didn't know her, she's still a member of our community.
"Our prayers and condolences go with the family and will do so for the coming weeks."
Referring to the effect her death has had on the village, she added: "This last year, we have had several young people die and I know it affects everyone.
"It brings home your mortality and you know that every day must be lived as it it's your last."
Peaches, who grew up in Faversham and is the daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, was discovered dead at her five-bedroom house in Fairseat Lane.
Police are treating her death as "sudden" and "unexplained" - but not suspicious.
Peaches' body was released to her family yesterday so funeral arrangements can be made.
A post-mortem examination has proved inconclusive and further toxicology tests, which could take several weeks, are being carried out.
