Kairos Britain is a network of individuals, organisations and faith communities formed in response to the Kairos Palestine document, ‘A moment of truth’. The network continues the work of the Christians who met on Iona in May 2012 and issued the Iona call to the Christian communities in Britain.
We seek a just and lasting peace in the region based on the realisation of full human and political rights for all.
We call for an end to oppression and injustice.
We realise the urgency of the situation and stress that the time to act is NOW.
In January 2016, the Church agreed to become "A Kairos congregation" working with others towards a just and peaceful settlement between Israel and Palestine.
During Lent this year, we are going to spend two Sunday afternoons considering the issues involved.
SESSION 1; Hearing the stories, seeing the pictures; getting to know something of the current situation in the region
SESSION 2; How did we get here?; learning about the history and what has led to the current struggles.
The network is linked to the global Kairos movement.
Also check out kairosbritain.org.uk to find out more about the movement and how you or your organisation can get involved.
