CAPTAIN Boyd, his wife and 12 of the Littleport Salvation army led the Fellowship Hour last Wednesday. There were items of singing, readings and a message on how precious the Bible is today and always will be.

Pastor Lowman led the Sunday morning service, the focus of which was the 200th anniversary of the passing of the abolition of slavery bill, a DVD from the Tearfund was shown which contained material relating to different ongoing forms of slavery, sex trade and poverty.

He also spoke on freedom and referred to the book of Philemon, and the reconciliation between Philemon and his slave Onesimus who fled to St Paul and became a Christian. Eventually Philemon freed Onesimus from slavery.

Tuesday morning Pastor Lowman went with other ministers to a fraternal meeting at Little Downham.

The weekly prayer meeting took place during Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

On Saturday a group of adults and young people will be going to Spring Harvest at Butlins Holiday Camp at Skegness.

Mr Waters will take the sermon next Sunday morning.
