The Vine Community Church

The Vine Community Church

June 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the Vine Community Church in Littleport. In 1982/83, several people from Littleport and the local area worshipped at High Street Church in Isleham. In June 1987, the group of about forty adults and children were ‘planted’ back here in Littleport as a church, supported at that time by High Street Church. The name ‘The Vine’ was chosen as in John Chapter 15 Jesus says, ‘I am the Vine,…

Nearly half way through another year and summer is upon us, but just cast your mind back, if you will, to Easter. Easter time is linked with all the new life springing up and blossoming at this time of year, but that of course is because we live in the northern hemisphere; down under, now autumn is in full swing and Easter coincided with dying back and getting ready for the winter rest. For us…

Now that summer is officially here, we can look forward to somewhat better weather and lighter nights. This always bodes well for our meetings – as they start at 7.30pm in the village hall, and although the service ends by 9pm it means you can still socialise, have a cup of tea and a biscuit, and still leave to get home in daylight. It’s the socialising and sense of family between everyone who attends our…

Last month we had the school room decorated at St John’s and I am pleased to say that the new colour scheme has made such a difference to the space. If you have not visited us for a while you will notice the change from the previous dingy mustard –gold. The room seems so much lighter and welcoming now. Our coffee mornings on the first Saturday of each month continue, so why not drop in…

The Vine Fellowship On Conversion!

The Vine Fellowship On Conversion!

At the age of 16, I began my apprenticeship as an electrical maintenance engineer at the AEC, where the famous Route Master London buses were made. Today they might be used for weddings or school proms. At 18, I became a Christian. It didn’t take me long to realise that the language people used in the factory was very different to the language people used in church! I was keen to share my faith with…

A View from the Methodist Manse

You might have guessed from my previous contributions that I like animals, nature and wildlife. When my sister and I were children, our parents bought a Ladybird book of Wild Birds to keep us occupied on long holiday walks in North Wales. Spotting birds and looking them up distracted us from aching legs and feet. I have kept my interest in wild birds as an adult although it is difficult finding time to get out…

A Message from Littleport Christian Spiritualists’ Society

We are pleased to say that our regular Thursday evening meetings – 7.30pm at the Village Hall are becoming even more popular with around 25 to 30 people attending every week. We are Spiritualists, which means basically that we believe that not only is there life after death, but that it’s provable through mediumship, communication between this world and the next, from those gone before and loved ones left here. When we meet for such…

By the time you read this 2017 will be well under way, but please just think back to New Year’s Day. When I was a child I always found New Year’s Day really flat; it was all over then and everything was back to normal. Of course when I was a child I reasoned like a child and now I’ve grown up, hopefully things are different. In the ancient world including the world of the…

Be prepared to be audited! Here at St George’s we have begun discussing how our parish church might be updated internally to make the church building more appropriate for today. This process is a bit complicated, but quite manageable and the result will hopefully be a building fit for the next 100 years (St George’s was last reordered in the 1860s so no, nothing of the interior is what we might call original). In case…

These three winter months mean different things to different people. In the religious sense, while we as basically Christians enjoy Christmas as a celebration of the birth of Jesus and a new light coming into the world 2,016 years ago, Judaism, the religion Jesus was born into, celebrates the festival of light called Chanukah, that Jesus would have enjoyed too. Jesus who grew up to be a miracle worker must have thrilled as a child…
