The brass ornate pulpit rails were removed from the stone stairs, a hanging candelabra in the sanctuary, fortunately one was left, and two silver plate flower vases were stolen. Likewise, probably the water from the vases was strewn over the altar kneeling cushions leaving them badly marked. If you know anything about this incident would be please contact:

You may query why the Church is left open each day. It is the policy of the PCC and Rochester Diocese that our Church is an open door to anyone and everyone. It was founded over 100 years ago as “The Little House of Goodwill” and it remains so to this day. Its interior decorations are considered, by academic Art Historians, to be a great example of the Arts and Crafts movement, founded by William Morris. All were gifts by generous residents of Four Elms Village and we are saddened that such a robbery has occurred, the first to our knowledge, at this time.
We continue to welcome all who wish to enter our beautiful Church and while “things” may have been stolen the heart of the Church is in good repair.
