St John’s Kids, 07 March 2021

Sunday 7 March This week we continue our talk series, looking at the book of Jeremiah. You can continue to access our digital services here and/or attend in-person at 10am or 5pm. The people of Judah had put their trust in the temple and the associated sacrifices and rituals. But outside of that system, they were overtly disobeying God in other areas of their lives. Are we sometimes guilty of attending church ‘religiously’ on Sundays and forgetting that a relationship with…
