About the event

This event is primarily for regular members of the Red Hill Congregation. It is ticketed as space is limited. £12 for an adult ticket & £7 for children.

Come and celebrate Purim with us, (fancy dress optional) as we give thanks to God for what He has done and continues to do in these days! According to the Scroll of Esther, "they should make them days of feasting and gladness" (Est. 9:22).

This is the one when people dress up in silly costumes and act out the story of Esther... you will see people in ways you’d never see them act during the rest of the year..... expect the unexpected! Fancy dress theme: film characters (optional).

The evening will start with Purim Punch, Domino's pizza and potato wedges! There will be the traditional amateur dramatics with the purim play followed by games, balloon release, music and a quiz. Please remember to bring your groggers!!!

Purim (POOR-im), meaning "lots" (Esther 9:24-26), is a commemoration of when God delivered the Jewish people from attempted genocide in Persia, during the 4th Century B.C.

The account follows heroes Mordechai and Esther, as they uncover and foil the evil plan of the villain, Haman, under the reign of King Xerxes (Achashverosh). The story is recorded in the Book of Esther and is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (late winter/early spring).

We celebrate both what God has done and continues to do in these days!

Interesting facts:

  • The word Purim means "lots" and refers to the lot Haman cast to decide the day for the destruction of the Jewish people
  • God's name is not mentioned in the book of Esther, but His providence and provision are obvious.
  • Hamantashen are three-cornered cookies that represent Haman's hat.
