The Littleport Christian Spiritualists – A message from the founding minister NCSS

I decided that this communication to you, had to be on a personal level, because prayer is very personal! Now you might say that I am stating the obvious. But we know that prayer is something about communication between us as individuals experiencing all of life’s ups and downs, and those elevated and loving beings on the other side of life, in the spirit realms of light, who hear our prayer requests and hurry them…

A Message from St John’s Methodist Church

A Message from St John’s Methodist Church

Once again, I am coming to the end of my time working in Littleport. What a wonderful place it is. I have enjoyed working with my Christian colleagues as well as meeting new people through baptism and funerals. All with different experiences of life and yet have shown me so much of what life is about and how they cope. We have been shocked recently by the evil killing of people of faith in the…

So, the Bible… On Desert Island Discs, the Bible is one of the books available to the castaway and in the film ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ a survivor wants to keep hold of a Bible; not because he believes it, but because the Bible is somehow special. Many people think the Bible is special, including many who don’t necessarily embrace its message. Here at St George’s we take studying the Bible very seriously. Carol Swain…

Vine Community Church – God’s Plans Are For Good, Not Evil

Do you believe that? When we have terrible things happening in our lives are we able to see the whole picture and know that God’s plans are for good? The Bible says, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’” (Jeremiah 29:11). While this verse may be comforting for you in your situation now,…

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…

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…

A Message from St John’s Methodist Church

It seems that I am back again. I have the privilege and joy of serving the Methodist church at Littleport. It looks like a return fixture as I served this church some eight years ago and am doing so again while we wait for the new minister to come. So who am I? My name is Bernard Arnold and I have been a Methodist minister for forty-eight years. I am married to Ruth who is…

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…
