Parishioners noticed the figure had been removed from its place at the heart of a display inside St Joseph's Catholic church on Highgate Hill.
The small statue was swiped from a crib display at the rear of the building last Friday.
After taking her confirmation class, parish council member Cheryl Juckes noticed the Baby Jesus had vanished.
“We are hoping that it is gone for a good reason will come back,” she said.
Ms Juckes described the other statues as “weighing a tonne” compared with the “more mobile” saviour.
“We are going to leave the crib up for the next couple of weeks in the hope that someone puts Jesus back,” she added.
