A message from the Methodist Minister for Littleport

Just recently our dog Rosie had to have her front left leg amputated due to bone cancer. It is amazing how well she is adapting to getting around on three legs. We are hoping that the cancer won’t spread to other parts of her body but for the present she is well and has got her bounce back albeit on three legs and not four. I have had pets for most of my life including…

By the time this edition of Littleport Life is printed we will be well into 2015, but I would just ask that you cast your mind back to November last year when the space probe Philae landed on the comet, out in deepest space.

St. John’s Methodist Church, Littleport – Baptism

Many churches in our communities baptise adults and children, by total immersion or the sprinkling of water on the forehead. Christians carry out this ritual today, to follow Jesus’ example, and to show that they believe and obey him. It is a symbol that someone belongs to Christ.

St. John’s Methodist Church, Littleport – A History

Were it not for the ongoing efforts of man, the fens would consist of water and marsh, not habitable land. It’s easy to feel dwarfed by the sheer vastness of the fens and be in need of human contact, human contact that shares our values and our beliefs.
