Where a warm welcome awaits you

Focus on Israel/Palestine

Kairos Britain

"Kairos Britain - A Time for Action" was launched at the Greenbelt Festival in August 2013, in response to the "Kairos Palestine - A moment of truth" published in 2009 by the Patriarchs and Heads of Churches in Jerusalem, calling on the International Community and World Churches to accelerate the achievement of justice, peace and reconciliation in the Holy land. 

The PCC established a "Kairos Group" at its meeting in Sep 2013. The group was charged with preparing a plan of action for consideration at the October meeting. The Kairos Action Plan (attached) was approved at the October meeting. We will now spend six months informing the Church about the situation in Israel/Palestine, after which there will be a time for prayer and reflection before the PCC decides whether St John's will sign up to become a Kairos congregation.
