It was not a regular sermon for worshippers of a church in Baringo County after they found their church broken into and valuables stolen.

According to reports, unknown burglars suspected to be from within illegally made their way into Full Gospel Church of Kenya and gained access to the safe room where the church valuables are kept.

The burglars got away with Sh10,000 from the offering kit, Piano, power amplifiers, cables, destroyed one of the speakers and other church property estimated to be worth over Sh200, 000.

Bishop Daniel Chemon, of the Full Gospel Church, condemned the incident saying it was a show complete disrespect to the house of God.

The incident points out the increasing cases of robbery in churches; a place ostensibly respected and perceived to be holy.

In March 2019, thieves broke into a church in Chepkurbet village within Ainamoi sub-county in Kericho and stole kitchen utensils and a Bible.

In June 2019, St Mary the Virgin in the United Kingdom was left open to the elements after thieves stole 90 percent of the lead roof. The thieves left damage estimated at over sh23 million.
