Mothers Union Report

Mothers Union Report

For the last few months, all that Mothers’ Union members have been able to do is to keep in touch with one another. When you read this, it will be summertime and the Mothers’ Union may just be meeting again in the parish room. However, since we have not met since March 2020, I will write about other things besides our Littleport meetings. The charity was founded by Mary Sumner, in 1876. She was a…

The Mothers Union is worldwide

The Mothers Union is worldwide

Mothers Union Christian Care for Families Because we are not meeting or holding fundraising events during lockdown I will tell about what Mothers’ Union does worldwide. At the beginning of the pandemic there was an emergency shortage of cash to fund Mary Sumner House in London. This is the centre of Mothers Union worldwide activity. Members rose to the challenge and gave money, just as individuals. Enough was raised to enable the work to go…

What Earthly Comfort can we expect from Spiritualism?

What Earthly Comfort can we expect from Spiritualism?

All the religions in the world, regardless of their philosophy, doctrine, dogma, ritual and opinion of other religions, all offer comfort to their adherents and followers in times of personal distress. The form that takes can be any amount of rituals and ceremonials with supplications and requests for help both from the sufferer of all those ‘slings and arrows of outrageous fortune’ and those who would seek alleviation and melioration from them on their behalf….

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…

Littleport Christian Spiritualists

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

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…

St George’s Church

St George’s Church

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…

Christian Spiritualists in Littleport

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…

Vine Community Church

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…
