The story of Nehemiah is all about the rebuilding of God’s city and the actions taken by God’s people. As we enter a new season as a church, we want to be inspired about the “great work” that God has called us to (Nehemiah 6:3), so each week we’ll look at a different action mentioned in the book that we think is important for kingdom life today.

Our new series started by looking at why a large gathering of people is the climax of the story of Nehemiah, and a vital part of God’s purposes for church life today.

When the people rebuilding Jerusalem faced growing opposition, Nehemiah called them to form small communities that could work together and fight for one another, and so achieve what God had set out for them. In this message from an all-age service, Dan shows us how committing to and engaging with small groups in our church community are just as important today.

Nehemiah was a man of action but also a person of prayer whom we can learn much from. His big and little prayers in the first two chapters of the book give us models for speaking to the God who loves to hear and answer our prayers.

As we continue looking at the story of Nehemiah, Dan speaks on how important it is to be FAT (faithful, available, teachable) as we listen to God and say “Yes” to Him.

Sometimes we’re faced with tasks in the building of God’s Kingdom that feel difficult, messy, and unpleasant. Continuing our series in Nehemiah, James looks at the story of The Dung Gate, and reminds us that we can trust Jesus in all the work we’re faced with, because what He has already done for us was messier and tougher than we could ever imagine.

Nehemiah 3 tells us that the work of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem involved everyone. This should be the same for church life, and Dan looks at three key factors that should help us realise this and live accordingly.

Soon after the rebuilding of Jerusalem began, God’s people faced opposition. Jesus promised us this too (John 10:10), so how do we persevere? Raphael shows us what the enemy is trying to do and how we can overcome opposition in our lives.

People are reading the Bible less than ever before – it’s a radical choice that most people don’t make. Nehemiah 8 shows us how wonderful and life-changing reading and hearing and obeying God’s Word can be.

The rebuilding project in Jerusalem ends with a recommitment to the covenant between God and his people. But what is a covenant and what does it mean for us? Nathanael looks at Nehemiah 9:38-10:39 to unpack it for us.

The book of Nehemiah ends with a profound sense of anti-climax as God’s people continue to live unfaithfully. This points us to Jesus as the only hope that any of us have. He wants to use the very things that Israel neglected to do us good.
