The Kairos Movement
November with kairos
November….a time of remembering, of change in the seasons, of trees showing us how to let go beautifully and with colourful celebration.
As the Kairos Movement it feels like our roots are digging deep, together we’re working out what will nourish us, keep us steady and help us to flourish. As we meet in our grassroots groups, or in our on line rhythm of prayer or as we meet up at other events there is a sense of community growing. We don’t want to rush ahead of ourselves, but slowly and steadily get to know one another, share some of our life and faith journeys, the things that bring us life and the situations that break our hearts, the things that we remember and the changes we are negotiating. We’re experimenting, taking some risks, making some mistakes and having some fun as we work out together how to be a network people who are following the way of Jesus as the world changes. It’s good to be among companions as we all work it out!
We believe the Way of Jesus offers us a vision and a path to flourishing as individuals, family and community. We dont just say that, we focus on it being a reality for us.
We in Kairos celebrate difference, and value what it brings to us as a community. Our movement is shaped by everyone it it, and we take the time, to get to know ourselves, so each can express who they are.
We gather physically and digitally, with a rhythm that works for us. Sometime for fun, sometimes to serve and worship. Sometimes small and intimate, other times open and welcoming of all.
We are still a new movement, but already we have a wide variety of events and activities taking place each month. Find your rhythm, by selecting those which will help you, breathe in, and breathe out.
Groups & Gatherings
Our leaders gather, with a coach on a regular basis, to reflect and encourage one another.
Intimate small groups, of different flavours, but where relationships grow, faith deepends, and we hold one another accountable.
Making a difference in our world, serving, loving, challenging or lobbying, sharing faith or putting it into action – we gather around an interest or passion to make a positive difference.
Grass Roots Network
Mentors, coaches, spiritual directors, shapers, sherpas, trainers and catalysts, and each of us help one another reflect, review and discern our individual and community balance.
Larger gatherings where we invite the public. These may be times of worship, social events, webinars or special interest discussion.
Its not possible to capture our position in detail on every issue, but we share here some core beliefs and outlooks from which we build as a movement. We recognise that those who follow Jesus dont all share these views, but we ask those who engage with us, to respect these foundational values.
