A spring in our steps and a brand new start! Are you, like me, a person who really enjoys spring? One of my children was born on the first day of spring and had he been a girl, she may have been named ‘Spring’. Looking back, she may not have appreciated what was then an unusual name so I am glad our son was named ‘Timothy’. But my joy in the season has not diminished….

Message from The Redeemed Christian Church of God

Spring can be said to be the start of new beginnings. And the Lord has promised us a season of Divine satisfaction. And in view of His promise we need to give thanks to Him. Psalm 103: verses 2-5 ‘Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender…

“We know the price of everything and the value of nothing”… I was reminded of that phrase by an article in a recent edition of Classic Car Weekly about a 1939 Mercedes Benz 770K Grosser Offener Tourenwagen (which I’m guessing means big car) which is to be auctioned in America. The model is reckoned as one of the motor industry’s greatest automotive achievements in design, engineering and construction. No estimate is given as to how…

Those who know me well know that I don’t do mornings; not early ones anyway! But when I was a volunteer at a Christian Guest House in Israel in 1988, we all got up to see the sunrise on Easter morning and held a short service on the terrace balcony. It was a magical moment and worth getting up for as we enjoyed the view from the village of Usafiyah on Mount Carmel. The spring…

When we first founded the Spiritualists’ Society aka Church in Littleport – we realised that the acronym spelled out gladness – minus an e. But that was enough for us! So ‘GLADN(e)SS’ was born! Then we added in the word Christian that looked like it might change that happy sobriquet too! But it then became, appropriately, a silent C! Appropriate because many of us know the meaningful motto that has hung on many a Christian…

It all started with pop tarts… they popped up on our television screens and popped out of our toasters. And since then, we’ve got pop-up shops, pop-up restaurants and now at Littleport & East Cambs Academy we have Pop-Up Church! We’re very grateful to Principal Mr Gaskins and his team for allowing us use of a classroom on Friday lunchtimes to meet with pupils and chat about all things, churchy or otherwise. Called Pop- Up…

From the gospel of John, Chapter 10 verse 4. (The New English Testament in Modern English) ‘And when he has brought all his own flock outside, he goes in front of them himself, and the sheep follow him…’ Have you ever seen farmers trying to drive a gaggle of geese from one location to another? They go behind the geese, don’t they? Compare this to shepherds who lead their sheep. They go before them, and…

Those of you of a certain age will remember the Pete Seeger song Turn, Turn, Turn (to everything there is a season). The song has been covered many times and the Byrds version being the most well known is included on the soundtrack of the film Forest Gump. The words of course are taken from the bible and include such phrases as a time to be born and a time to die, a time to…

Littleport is well provided with churches. All of them, of course, are built on the foundation of the saving work of the Lord Jesus Christ – His life, death and resurrection. But each one expresses this in very different ways. So, whenever you think a local church might be useful to you, you should be able to find one with which you are comfortable. Most of the churches are represented in this magazine and most…

It is no secret that the founder of our Church is a keen ice sports person. Or that I am a fan of one of the greatest sermons ever preached in my opinion. The one given by Rhiny Fletcher, an ice sports enthusiast himself, at Littleport’s Primitive Methodist Chapel on the Hundred Foot Bank in 1900! And he is the inspiration for this 2017 winter-time message to you. Preacher Fletcher maintained that ‘Job was a…
