Last night we had our first gathering of Elders from the different congregations which formed Kairos. We began by sharing in a communion service and then spent time getting to know each other using a great resource called "Faith Talk" cards. After this we reflected on a discussion paper about how to renew and reinvigorate our elders and leader. In general we thought about raising the bar of expectation in the role and finding ways to educate and equip people to meet our current challenges. The sharing of the whole group was great and more than one person commented about how good the meeting was. It is wonderful to think that you can have a good church meeting!

Kairos Uniting Church is a group of congregations in the inner northern suburbs of Brisbane. It includes 6 worshipping families: Clayfield, Geebung, Earnshaw Rd (Banyo), Hamilton and Wavell Heights (Saturday Night @ Wavell and Sunday morning).
Each of these small congregations is distinctive in character and has a desire to grow and serve God.
In coming together we have taken the name Kairos a Greek word which means the opportune time. As a people of faith we are trying to understand what it means to be people 'Living life in God's time!'
We hope the blog will become a place that we can offer helpful reflections on faith and spirituality in our cotnemporary setting.
