The book of Esther is full of parties! However, the motivations for them are not the same. Mahvash looks at this final party, as God's people celebrate God's faithfulness and righteousness.

When Matthew was writing his account of that first Christmas, he includes a list of names. We might sometimes just skip over these names, but if we look a little closer we see that it's dynamite!

Esther vs Haman
The God-ward and Self-ward Life
Esther 5
6th Dec 2020

As we reach the midpoint in the story we stop to compare and contrast two of the main characters - our hero Esther, and the villain Haman. What is it about that makes Esther and Haman so different? We see that Haman lives life for himself, focussing on his own achievements and ability whereas Esther looks to God and uses his wisdom to guide her. It can be so easy in life to focus on ourselves and try and do things in our own strength as we see with Haman. However, this is never a good place to be. Our first goal should always be to seek God and put him at the centre of every situation.

It's crunch time for Esther! Will she act courageously in response to Haman's plan or just keep quiet? Simon shows us that courage comes from identity, not the other way round.

When we make decisions to follow God rather than go with the flow, we shouldn't be surprised if opposition comes. Soroush shows from this passage how we can live faithfully in these times.

All Ages Church
17th Nov 2020

In the second talk of our 2020 Equip Group Gavin looks at the topic of different ages being released within the church. The Bible talks about people of all ages being released and having a role to play in the church. As churches, we need to ensure that everyone is included and given a sense of purpose! We need to think about the next generation, but also the gift and wisdom that comes with age, different generations can support each other and learn from each other on our walks.
