A marble statue was among the haul taken from a West Norfolk church by thieves.
The Mother and Child statue was taken from All Saints’ Church in Brandon Road, Hilborough, along with religious ornaments.
Two wooden staves, decorated with a brass cross and crown, were also taken during the break-in, which happened between December 19 and 28.
A police spokesman said: “Whilst we regard all burglaries as distressing for the victims, breaking into a church is a particularly deplorable act and we would appeal to anyone with information about this incident to come forward and help us to catch the perpetrators.”
Witnesses are asked to contact PC Amy Chalcraft on 101 (calls 15p).
