A ‘New Normal’? As I sat down to start to write this ‘piece’ for ‘Littleport Life, I suddenly realised that I am writing at the start of October, but you may not read this until December. Now, if I were writing last year, in October 2019, this would be no problem; but I am writing now, in the Year of the Global Pandemic! Last year, I would have been sure that the magazine would be…

I could say that this message to you is given with my other hat on – but in this case we could say my other collar! Spiritualism arrived in this village with me and my partner Cathy in 1998… What we call a suitcase church was set up in the Village Hall and it soon filled every Thursday with good vibes and many people who were either already Spiritualists, or were interested in finding out…

The Mothers’ Union at St George’s Littleport

We have been unable to meet since lockdown began in March. We have been keeping in touch by phone and on the internet. This does not mean that we have been idle. A few willing and capable members have sewn scrubs for hospitals, made many, many masks and sewn ‘Bereavement Bags ‘ for the return of the belongings of those who have died in hospital, separated from their loved ones. Others have continued to knit…

It’s lovely to be asked to write something for Littleport Life so I can introduce myself. My name is Madeleine, the interim Priest in Charge for St George’s. I’m here for two years to support and guide the Church. I’ve been living in Littleport for just over a year and it’s great to get more involved. Two major events are looming on the horizon for all of us, both of which we’ve experienced before. The…

I was inspired recently to watch an old favourite TV show again from the early 2000s, “The West Wing” where Martin Sheen plays a very fair, balanced and passionate US president, however for a time he sat very much in the middle ground not wanting to rock the boat, as opposed to fighting for what he believed. In one episode Sheen’s character was told a parable about Gods assistance. The parable is this; A faithful…

When the last Littleport Life was being published, churches were writing their articles back in March. At this time, we were at the start of the lockdown when churches had to close. With their buildings shut, churches had to quickly adapt and provide new ways to enable believers to continue to worship and fellowship with each other. Most of this adaptation took place through the use of the Internet with online services premiering on Sundays,…

Reflection for Littleport Life

Reflection for Littleport Life

It’s really strange to be writing this piece for Littleport Life on behalf of St George’s. As many of you will know already, Howard has moved to a new job and new challenges in the diocese of Oxford. We are so thankful for everything Howard helped to establish here in Littleport, creating links with so many individuals, groups and organisations and we are determined that this will continue. St George’s has a strong Ministry team…

I’ve been in Littleport three years now, and the rooks in the trees a couple of streets away have been my constant companions through the day and through the seasons. What a season this last one has been (and very much continuing as I write). We have all had our own thoughts during lockdown, and not a few challenges. One morning in March, as soon as I woke up, a few words and phrases came…

We have all endured much over the last few months, in many and various ways, but the planet has kept turning and the sun has risen over our horizon and set each day, regardless of the tumultuous earthly events that tested the entire world’s population to the utmost with many likening it to the last world war. But this has been a war where the entire nations of the world were united in battling a…

As I write this article, we are in lockdown due to the coronavirus, but hopefully by the time you are reading it, we are not; at least I hope some restrictions will have been lifted. Whilst the lockdown is global, its effect is played out at a highly personal, individual, level with a huge impact upon all our lives. For many that means big restrictions on movement and for others, an even bigger impact with…
