Exhibition to mark Bible date

Have your say

A NEW exhibition has been opened at Epworth Old Rectory to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James translation of the Bible.

The exhibition was opened officially by Nick Nothard, chairman of the Isle of Axholme Family History society, whose ancestors are mentioned in inscriptions in two of the Bibles in the exhibition.

The Rev David Leese, superintendent minister of Wesley Memorial Methodist Church, Epworth, also started a handwritten Bible project by writing out the first verse of Acts chapter 2.

Mum’s the word

TICKHILL branch of the Mothers’ Union has mounted a display at the back of St Mary’s Church to show visitors the work undertaken by the organisation. Last year they raised £1,000 for MU projects.

Church arson

FIREFIGHTERS were called to a gate found burning behind a church on Duke Street in Doncaster town centre. The blaze, reported around midnight on Monday, was said to have been started deliberately.
