CHORISTERS from Worle are hoping some divine intervention might help them get some of their hymn books back.The group, based at St Martin's Church in Church Road, has seen £500 worth of copies of Mission Praise and New English Hymnal go missing in the last two years - so it is starting an amnesty to get them back.Choir treasurer and leadership member at the church, Neil Adams, along with his wife Val, is among the churchgoers appealing for the books to be returned.He thinks there may be some hidden stashes of the books in people's homes that have been long forgotten.Mr Adams, of Gleneagles Close, said: "There is now not enough books for the choir or the organist."We were looking at buying some more but thought there might be some tucked away. I think people might have them in a cupboard or propping open a door."Anyone who finds a hymn book in their home can return it to St Martin's parish office, which is open at the church from 9am-12noon Monday to Friday.
