We are excited that we have Matt Summerfield(Urban Saints), John and Joanne O’Connor, (Junction 42), Rich Atkinson(Rebuild) and Lynn Alexander (Children Families and God) joining us to help us think through how we both disciple different generations of people, as well as how we disciple all-generations of people together as one church.
This event is open to anyone and we have space for plenty of people so come along with your colleagues, teams and friends! Tickets are now available at www.buytickets.at/kx and we hope to see you there.
As I’ve been working with churches around the UK over the last 4 years, I’ve noticed that many leaders and churches are grappling with busyness, struggling budgets, multiple programmes, and high demand projects, but don’t feel they are being particularly effective in seeing lost people come to faith or in raising healthy and motivated disciples and leaders in the life of the church.
The idea of growing communities of believers where discipleship is the air they breathe, mission the thing that gets them out of bed in the morning, and community the place where they find their most important extended family relationships – is a mere dream. The thought that these groups could also be the most fertile place for growing leaders for the future is a distant hope!
Kairos Connexion supports leaders and equips churches to be effective in mission, discipleship, community and growing leaders. Our strapline is ‘raising missionary disciples’. Over the years we have developed numerous principles and practices that have blessed hundreds and hundreds of leaders across the UK. We are now offering this same training through a ‘whole church, easy access, quick win, low cost’ approach.
Join us for a taster days in either Cambridge or Liverpool to start this journey.

Reaching a whole town or city with the gospel. Saturating a place with good news. Completing the great commission where I live. If any of these thoughts excite you then you’ll be pleased to know that a number of places are beginning to ask the questions ‘what might that look like round here?’
As I’ve had the opportunity to explore and experiment with some of these ideas in the Liverpool city region in recent years, I’ve been asked to input to a number of other places – specifically Chester, Ipswich, Newcastle and Basingstoke this term.
What would it look like if in 10 years in your place everyone knew someone whose life had been transformed by Jesus? What if every neighbourhood had a small group of Christians living out life together, praying for their streets, practically blessing their neighbours, finding the people of peace, creating pathways to faith, and producing disciple-makers?
What if we did this so that everyone knew where to get spiritual bread, to get practical help, and to find Jesus? What if we multiplied these groups so that there was one missional expression of church (an MC in our language) for every 1000 people (#1in1000)?
This is our dream for seeing people and places transformed by the gospel.
Here’s a bunch of 15+ of those kind of Christians in Liverpool who are praying and plotting to do just that for their neighbourhood. Current plans for the next couple of months include:
helping a neighbour with an overgrown garden.
continuing to befriend the night-time security guard who watches a particular footballer’s mum’s house in our street.
serving and blessing the local catholic primary school in our street (flapjacks for the receptionist so far).
taking round bunches of daffodils for the women in our street over the mother’s day weekend and inviting their families to the Easter service.
In partnership with Elim training we are pleased to announce the launch of a series of three training webinars across 2018 for church leaders wanting to develop missional discipleship in their church.
These webinars have been designed to help church leaders to train their key leaders and teams in developing the missional, discipleship and leadership culture in their churches. Participants are invited to gather a team in their local setting on these 3 Saturday mornings in 2018 to watch and participate in the webinar. Included in the cost is a place for the Senior Leader in an 8 session online Coaching Huddle with an experienced Kx practitioner, which will help you to embed the principles you learn into your local setting.
Church leaders are encouraged to then work out how to to apply and process the training content in a way that makes best sense for your local context.
Places are limited and are at a cost of £310* per church for the full 12 months. If you would like to find out more email [email protected]
