Quiet Day II
15th April 2024 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
It’s About Time
Leader: Revd Colin Blake
Jesus’ very first teaching was on this subject. “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!” There are several words in the Greek language which translate into the English for time. Chronos is the one we would find most familiar, meaning sequential time, the kind of time you find on your wristwatch. Another is Kairos, meaning an event, an opportunity, a moment in time when perhaps everything changes because it is the right time. A Kairos moment is when God breaks into your circumstances with an event that gathers some loose ends of your life and knots them together in his hands. The day will provide an opportunity to help us recognise and reflect on these Kairos events in our lives. To introduce the Learning Circle and enable us to seize these opportunities and celebrate the kingdom life this process brings.
Colin Blake has always had a desire to engage with new way of being church. After planting a church and school in the Bristol Diocese, a move to Bath & Wells saw him lead a community church in a local pub, alongside being a regional co-ordinator in the early days of Messy Church. This led to a relocation to Yorkshire where he became Fresh Expressions advisor to the Bishop of Bradford, and leader of GraceSpace Fresh Expression in Saltaire. He concluded his ministry as Vicar of Wrose in Bradford before retiring with wife Katy to Hellifield. Colin enjoys computers, blogging, music and promoting concerts.
