The KAIROS Committee consists of members of the Anglican, Lutheran, Roman Catholic and United Churches in Salmon Arm. We are part of a national inter-church body, KAIROS, which was formed by amalgamating ecumenical groups such as Ten Days for World Development, Project North and the Churches’ Council for Social Responsibility.
We meet once a month to discuss, write letters and organize educational events on social justice and peace issues as they stem from our Christian beliefs. We take part in KAIROS’ national campaigns and regional gatherings. KAIROS’ current national campaign alerts church members to the particularly devastating impact of climate change on people living in extreme poverty. We also join with other local groups to promote the abolition of nuclear weapons, a just peace in the Middle East, programmes to reduce homelessness, and responsible practices by Canadian mining and oil companies.
If you are concerned about such issues, please join with us! We meet upstairs at First United at 1:30 pm on the second Tuesday of each month.
