Vine Community Church – Bees and Flowers – messages from God?

We have beekeepers in our church family at The Vine. Their bees make the most wonderful-tasting honey. Of course they are really God’s bees. Everything we have really comes from God. I’ve been thinking about just how extraordinary bees are. I’m writing this in July, and there are bees of different kinds buzzing around in my garden. They especially seem to like a plant called Lamb’s Ear. I was reading the other day that female…

Church is a movement, not an exhibit… Let me elaborate. There’s a tale from South America about a family and their prize possession, a wonderful old car. They spend so much time polishing the paintwork, dusting the upholstery, generally checking it over; they really love their car. They spend time sat in the car too, telling stories of journeys with all the hazards you might meet, and also, all the exciting things you might get…

A Message from Littleport Christian Spiritualists

A Message from Littleport Christian Spiritualists

One of the first lessons I learnt as a Spiritualist, over 21 years ago, was the simple principle that our way of life should make itself open and available to all. Although at the time both myself and the one who taught me that lesson were not ‘officially’ classified as Christian Spiritualists, there is no doubt in my mind that in our hearts we were. I refer to Rev Lyn Gibb-de Swarte. When we both…

A Message from St John’s Methodist Church www.littleportlife.

Dear Friends After a number of years my time at Littleport has come to an end. I have enjoyed working here at the Methodist Church and so much alongside other churches in the village. I have found the people warm and friendly and am amazed at the number who have been in Littleport all their lives. Of course, a number go back to the shirt and mac factories but a lot did work on the…

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

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

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…

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…
