A group of 53 Nigerian bishops made a recent trip to the Isle to discover more about John and Charles Wesley, who are credited with founding Methodism.

They were given a tour of Epworth old Rectory, the home of the Wesley brothers in the 18th century, and joined the ‘Walk of Wesley’ walk around the town.

Bishop Isaac of Ilesa Nigeria said: ”Visiting Epworth has been a privilege.”

Reverend David Leese, of Wesley Memorial Methodist Church, said their visit was a “delight.”
