Collaborations

Kairos actively seeks partnership and collaboration with other groups that share our heart, rather than re-inventing the wheel.  We partner with many Methodist churches, by virtue of our being part of the Methodist church umbrella, but we have developed life-giving collaborations with many others, and look forward to expanding our family of connections.

Present Collaborations

Selby Street

Selby Street, is a Methodist mission church in Hull.  Alongside the local community they have a particular ministry to those on the edge of society, including those who are homeless, or struggle with addictions.  Kairos leads spirit filled, if a little chaotic, worship on a Friday morning.

Peaced Together

Peaced Together is a charity that trains and hosts ten week courses which enable those attending to open themselves to brokenness in their lives, and express and seeking healing through the use of craft materials.  Steph Cooper, a Kairos member leads this ministry in our region.

South Bank Studios

South Bank Studios is a community of artists residing in Southlands Methodist church.  The community was founded by one of our leaders, Andy, but has now a life of its own, and regularly hosts workshops, fayre and community events. 

Rooted in Hull

Rooted in Hull is an Urban farm, come permaculture and environmental awareness project based in Hull.  Rooted graciously hosts many Kairos events, from concerts, poetry slams, bonfires and other celebrations.  It is a wonderful venue, with its own vibe and spirituality and inspiring to visit in its own right.

Acomb Quiet Garden

Acomb Methodist in York has developed a beautiful, quiet oasis of a community garden behind its church.  They’ve recently registered with the Quiet Garden movement, and have a log cabin and now a beautiful Garden studio and summerhouse, and offer space for counselling, spiritual direction, personal and group prayer and meditation.  Kairos uses this facility regularly and many of our members are linked to the church.

Pride

Being an inclusive movement, it was a natural step for us to involve ourselves as people of faith, in support of their own all-inclusive message.   We had a great time joining the Hull and York pride processions in 2022, and look forward to future opportunities to do so.
