This service is available in both video and audio format.

Chris concludes our series in Esther and ties up the themes and threads that have been running through the past few months. He also asks how we can apply them to our unusual current situation. Elsewhere in the service, Ricky leads prayers, Karen explains how the situation is affecting her and Barry and Lynne read a poem together.

Also, one of our worship leaders, Pete Roberts, has chosen the songs for us to listen to this morning. The playlist can be found in the paragraph below the video.

22 March 2020

This service is available in both video and audio format.

In a world that suddenly seems a lot different to the one that we’re used to, this week we have a very different kind of service. The outbreak of coronavirus and the drastic measures we have all now had to take to slow down it’s spread seem to have taken us all completely by surprise and underprepared. But were we?

In the first of what we’re all praying is a very short series of video services Chris looks at what God has been teaching us as a church over the past year and how we can use all that we have heard to help us deal with the new situations we find ourselves in. We also have prayers from Susan and reflective poetry read by Barry.

To help it feel more like a proper service, Lynne has put together a playlist of songs that you can listen to after the message and reflect on how God is prompting you to respond. Find the YouTube playlist in the paragraph below the video.

Esther 8

Mordecai and Esther had different roles to play but were united in their goal. Similarly we are many but one body and we each have a part to play. In the light of this we should stand firm, putting on the full armour of God.
Susan reminds us of how God defeats the enemy in the places of despair and loss of hope; challenges us to identify those areas of our lives where despair and resignation have set in; and encourages us with the good news that the Lord, who is our shepherd, longs to shepherd our souls through every disappointment in life and to bring restoration. He restores our souls.

Esther 7

In Esther chapter 7 we see God continuing to work through seeming coincidence to bring a divine reversal.  God bring this about through Esther as she recognises her royal position may have been given to her for a reason.  Chris sees the links with Holy Week and applies the a new testament perspective as we recognise that we were born for such a time as this.

Year Text in Context

Our year text is a call to live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him by bearing fruit and growing the knowledge of God but it is also a prophetic blessing over us to enable us to do those things.
