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…

A Message from St George’s Church

Just a few years ago, the Church of England undertook what it called The Weddings Project. The project’s aims were to raise the church profile on weddings generally, but also to double the number of church weddings in two parishes nationally. Those two parishes were not chosen at random; they were the parish with the least number of church weddings per head of population and the parish with the most church weddings per head of…

A Message from St George’s Church

Following on from my message in the last Littleport Life, I’m pleased to report that a great time was had by all at our two open weekends. Teddies & the Tower went very well with all teddies descending in either a ‘plane or a hot air balloon. And our very first Pet Service was huge fun with the dogs, the cat, the guinea pig, the tortoise and the bull… yes, a bull called Shaun who…

Message from St George’s Church

It was a fine balmy evening and the bells of St George’s were being rung to celebrate St George’s Day when someone heard a distinct knocking sound………”that shouldn’t be happening” – so they investigated. And the news is not good. The bells which were last re-hung about 100 years ago now have so much wear in the headstocks (where they swing) that they all need repairing. As they have to be removed to do the…

The Game of Life… What makes a good friend? What would you do to get £1million? Which is the first book of the bible? Is it ever OK to tell a lie? Of the following, are any/all in the bible? A dragon, a talking donkey, a sparrow. These and many questions like them are asked whilst playing “The Game of Life”. Let me explain. The GOL is aimed at 10- 13 year olds and involves…

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. The landing was the end of the 10 year Rosetta Mission and without doubt, it is a stunning technical achievement. The aim is to understand the comet and from that, to…
