Take Hold | S6: Time To Party

Teaching Series Introduction:

We have a once in a generation chance. There is so much pain behind us, and so much possibility ahead. What if this is the moment? What if now is the time to throw off the past, and take hold of a future that really is different. What if now is the time to take hold of life?

TAKE HOLD: Session 6

TITLE: Time To Party
BY: Nathanael Ballew
DATE: 25 July 2021
BIBLE PASSAGE: Nehemiah (Chapter 11, verses 1-2 & Chapter 12, verses 27-30)

It’s only when we look back can we see how far we have come. It’s only as we take time to see what God has done, that we really can party!

Study Questions

There are three different sets of questions for you to use, whether you are exploring God’s word within your Life Group, in other group settings, or simply using them on your own. (If the below questions are blank, please know that we will be updating this blog post as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience and understanding).


These are simple questions to provoke discussion together out of the talk (ideal if you are watching our Sunday Service online with others):

  1. What particularly struck you, or connected with you in Nathanael’s talk?

  2. Was there anything that you didn’t quite understand, or you’re not sure if you agree with in Nathanael’s talk?

  3. If there was one particular thing that you wanted to do or change, as a result of the talk, what would it be?


These are questions that are based on the talk and the surrounding themes:

  • Coming soon!


These are questions to help you go a little deeper, by exploring the wider biblical context. 

  • Coming soon!
