Cross and Candlestick Stolen from Church in Addington

Country: United Kingdom

Date of incident: May 10, 2022

A cross and candlestick were stolen from the medieval church of St. Mary in Addington on the 10th of May. Reverend Debbie Forman said that the items have "little intrinsic value" but the church is "not the same without them." The church remained open and the hope was that the thief, who was not known, would return them.

Reverend Debbie Forman added: "The items are a brass cross and brass candlestick, both quite large, very heavy and difficult to conceal and carry... they are beautiful, and our church, which is also beautiful, is not the same without them."
