The Kairos Movement

For those hungry to live differently the Jesus Way

SPRING 2024

Evenings are definitely getting lighter. With celebrations of Imbolc, the Gaelic traditional festival that marks the beginning of spring we know we are half way between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. The festival heralds the seasonal change. The first spring flowers are pushing through the cold dark soil. Snow drops are a symbolic flower, due to the fact they are one of the first flowers to bloom in spring; they appear in stories to suggest hope, consolation and new beginnings. The Kairos Movement draws inspiration from ancient stories, particularly those of Jesus, who reassure us that new life will always come, although it may be in new and unexpected ways. We are a community of people who encourage one another that when it looks like everything is over, if we wait, at the right time the new growth pushes through. The Spirit is doing a new thing, it is springing up; we are attempting to collectively perceive and respond. We currently have a relaxed shared rhythm of life where we meet in a hybrid form one evening a week for conversation and one morning a week on line for prayer. Apart from that there is a broad programme of opportunities available for us to meet up and get involved. We would love you to join us as we share our bemusement, insight, wisdom, confusion, hope and prayers in creative and informal ways. Please do check out our calendar to find out what we’re doing this week, and how you could join us in companionable waiting and discovering the beauty that is breaking through this spring.

Spring 2024

Kairos Wednesdays

Kairos Wednesdays start this October.  We’ll meet Weekly during term-time, in homes across Yorkshire and the North East Region. 

With time to catch up with other groups via zoom at the start of our gatherings, we’re then offering a pattern of gatherings that we hope will be fun, with good conversation and ideas to stimulate.  We’ll aim to eat together once a month, and invite both external guests speakers, in-house bloggers to share with us.  We’ll have tasters of some of Kairos’ activities from creative evenings, to stilling and quiet and also ask our activists to update us and encourage us to action.

Hopefully there will be a group local to you, but if not then do join the zoom group, or maybe host a group in your locality.

Flourish

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.

Belong

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.

Gather

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.

Supporting Kairos

We would be incredibly grateful, for those who feel they could make a one off donation towards sustaining and developing the Kairos Movement, and even more so, if you feel you could offer us ongoing support through a small monthly standing order.
