Rectory holds carol contest

A CHALLENGE has been thrown out to local youngsters to produce a Christmas carol, which will then be performed at a special service to be held in December.

It has come from Epworth’s Old Rectory – the museum at the house which was the childhood home of John and Charles Wesley, the founders of a movement that went on to become the Methodist Church.

Closing date for entries is November 11. Rules, teachers’ resources and application forms are available by logging onto
