Equipped - in partnership with Moorlands College

The Bible study programme for this holiday week is run in partnership with Moorlands College, one of the UK's leading evangelical Bible Colleges, offering degree and post-graduate courses in Applied Theology.

Our aim is to provide some more in-depth Bible study this week for those who are interested. Moorlands principal Andy du Feu will be sharing background, context and application from the book of Esther. There will be opportunity for questions and discussion over an LPO coffee after the main morning sessions.

Written around 2500 years ago by an unknown author, the book of Esther never mentions God. It has a lot to do with God's people the Jews however, with plots and counter-plots leading to high drama, public execution and the Jewish people being authorised to "destroy, kill and annihilate" their enemies. Andy has studied Esther in depth and will share insights that apply to us as individuals and reflections that give perspective to Middle Eastern affairs today.
