Statement regarding the break-in at the Malmesbury Abbey:
On Thursday 16th November, there was a break-in at the Malmesbury Abbey, which resulted in a number of items of great significance being stolen.
Wiltshire Police have been notified of the situation and are actively investigating it. At this time, we would like to request the public to provide space for the police to do their work and contact Wiltshire Police directly if anybody has information related to the case.
The Rev’d Oliver Ross, Vicar of Malmesbury & the Upper Avon Group of Churches said: “We are all deeply hurt and dismayed by the break-in at the Abbey. We are amazed that someone would stoop so low as to desecrate and steal from the house of God”
We ask everybody to hold the Malmesbury Abbey, its staff and the community in their prayers at this difficult time, as we work together towards healing and hope for the stolen items to be successfully recovered.
“Remember, nothing can separate us from the love of God.”
– The Rev. Oliver Ross
