Kairos Launchpad

Our vision is not purely to be an independent movement, but to act as catalysts, and networkers for people who have a passion or interest, or a gifting or sense of calling to start something new. That may be a Grass Roots group, with a particular focus, rhythm or flavour. It may be, to begin a Kairos Team, which serves, ministers, supports or moves to action around a theme, idea or need. Those two things sit readily within Kairos, but equally you may wish to partner, or launch something in an existing church, project or charity, or partner with a group that is community based and focussed.

Our launchpad, is a place to share ideas that are bubbling up for you, that you’d be willing to connect with others to explore. This is primarily about that exploration and discernment, rather than permission giving, or firm plans.   Do let us know, if you’d like to bring something to birth and one of our Grass Roots Network can help with that process.
