Devout Anglican, Alan Greaves, 68, was found collapsed on the pavement with multiple head injuries late on Christmas Eve. At the time, he was on his way to Midnight mass to play the church organ when he was attacked. He died in hospital from massive brain damage.

Two men have been arrested in relation to the murder of church organist Alan Greaves.

Police investigating the attack just yards from the church in High Green, Sheffield, said they have arrested a man in his 20s and a man in his 40s on suspicion of murder.

Both men are from Sheffield and are currently being held in custody.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: ‘Officers are searching a number of properties in the area and there has been a high-visibility police presence in High Green today.’

Investigators are still appealing for witnesses to come forward with any information about the murder.

Maureen Greaves, who spent Christmas Day praying at her husband’s bedside, said she had been left devastated by the death of her husband of 40 years.

The ‘gentle and well-respected’ organist suffered brain damage and died in hospital on Thursday night.

He had been due to play the organ at Midnight Mass at St Saviour’s  Church in High Green, Sheffield.

Detectives believe the attack may have been a robbery gone wrong or a case of mistaken identity. Police are yet to determine what weapon was used by his attacker.

Maureen Greaves, 63, told The Sun last night: ‘There was no motive. We are devastated.

‘It is just not what you expect, somebody to walk down the street and get murdered – and at this time of year as well, it’s just dreadful.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
