Some of you have already met Sharon Byrne who has been working with us at St George’s since September 2017 in a role called a Pioneer Partner. I am delighted to be able to say that Sharon has “partnered” the work of the church so effectively, it was with great pleasure that we felt her role should develop into a new one with the title “Children’s & Families Missioner”. This is a three year post…

Vine Community Church – Do not despise the ‘small things’ …

Last November, I walked down my garden and the weeping pussy willow tree caught my eye. Since the leaves fell, it had been a mass of dull brown twigs and – if you knew where to look – small dark buds. But that morning, some of the buds had – overnight! – turned a brilliant butter yellow colour. And I knew that, if nothing else, the tree was still alive (though dormant) and the processes…

Vine Community Church – Every Carol tells a Story

Christmas is coming! And by now you might have heard quite a few carols on the radio, each telling the Christmas Story in their own way. There’s Mary getting the news that she’s going to be the mother of Jesus – ‘The Angel Gabriel from heaven came.’ There are shepherds in the fields watching their flocks by night and a heavenly choir turns up. The lead angel says ‘Fear not, glad tidings of great joy…

We have family in Australia and in a recent skype call, our son said “the weather is warming up now” because of course, in the southern part of the globe they are preparing for summer. The world keeps turning with its cycles of light and dark, warmth and cold, growth and rest and after our very hot summer, autumn is well under way and soon winter will be upon us; the damp and darkness, the…

Greater Littleport and District New Christian Spiritualists’ Society

There have been Spiritualist meetings in Littleport since 1998 writes Lyn Gibbde Swarte. Begun in the old Leisure Centre, it moved to the Village Hall soon after, and has remained a weekly Thursday night fixture ever since. It was started by a group of Littleport people who had joined a spiritual and psychic development circle run by a well-known medium and healer who had relocated from London. She was also the editor of the old…

Greater Littleport and District New Christian Spiritualists’ Society

A Spiritualist meeting has been going on in the village since 1998. Yes, it is what is called a ‘suitcase church’ but many of the best religious gatherings have been a moveable feast! And even where there is a fixed venue that was built for the purpose, however large or small, there has always been an outreach, whether for home visits to the sick, to offer prayer and spiritual succour to those who cannot travel…

Each year, around Easter, the Spring Harvest Christian Conference partners with a Christian charity which is making a huge difference in our troubled world. Last year their partners were Samaritan’s Purse. It was moving to see the work done by this charity to bring relief to many, for example, those in war torn countries or where storm damage has left people homeless. For the next five years Spring Harvest will be working in partnership with…
