Church in Ayrshire Repeatedly Targeted by Vandals

Country: United Kingdom

Date of incident: May 20, 2022

The Kilmarnock South Parish Church in Ayrshire, was repeatedly targeted by vandals during May. Over several weeks, doors were smashed and glass was broken by a group of youth who were seen on CCTV. A spokesperson for The Well, an outreach group that organizes events at the church, said: "We are slowly trying to get the place up and running to serve the community but this is just soul destroying."

They continued: "This behaviour is costing us money every month and is just unacceptable. We are aware of the roof antics too and have the culprits on CCTV as they are clearly too stupid to read the signs."

The incidents were reported to the police.
