PUBLISHED: 10:00 22 April 2016
Exmouth’s Glenorchy Church is facing a £1,600 bill to repair one of its windows.
It is not known how the window was smashed.
The Reverend Robert Jennings says the incident will not stop them from continuing to help the people of Exmouth.
He said: “It is a sad that this has happened.
“We believe it will cost around £1,600 to repair. The window will be replaced soon.”
The church was founded as an independent church by the Viscountess Glenorchy in 1777.
In 1972, Glenorchy voted to become a part of the United Reformed Church, formed by the uniting of Congregational and Presbyterian churches and is now one of 1,700 churches belonging to the United Reformed Church in the United Kingdom.
The United Reformed Church Glenorchy has a total congregation of around 100.
Devon and Cornwall Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident. Anyone with information should call the police on 101.
