Shipley Reliquary Re-Discovered

25 Oct 2020, midnight

The Reliquary stolen in 1976 has been recovered and kindly given back to the Church by the current owner who had no idea it had been stolen. 

It is our intention to loan the reliquary to Horsham Museum for display and safekeeping, so that the wider community can enjoy this wonderful piece of our heritage. Working together with Horsham Museum, we will develop educational assets to allow Schools and young people to fully engage in learning about the history of the local area, and the role played by the Church in Shipley.

Should you have any questions or comments you would like to make our plans please do not hesitate to contact the Church Wardens at [email protected]
