Church bombings. Mass stabbings. Hardly anonymous.
Fifteen UK churches told to stop services in anonymous letters threatening attacks
By Barnabas Fund, 22 January 2019
Handwritten letters threatening petrol bomb attacks and mass stabbings have been sent to 15 churches in the UK in the past two months.
“Stop all your services straight away”, said one letter sent to a church in Sheffield, South Yorkshire “if you don’t your church will be petrol bombed while in service. Continue behind closed doors and your congregation members will be stabbed one by one. Blood on your hands. You have been warned.”
One of the hand written letters, bearing a West Midlands post mark, was sent to a Sheffield church, demanded that they stop their services and threatened to bomb the church

Services are continuing and police officers have been deployed to the churches affected.
A local faith school decided to withdraw pupils from services at the Sheffield church after they received the threatening letter.
A police investigation has been opened and, at the time of writing, inquiries are ongoing.
