Introduction to the Sabeel-Kairos Theology Group

The Sabeel-Kairos theology group was formed several years ago to address the many theological issues and challenges facing the Church worldwide when it comes to their engagement on Israel/Palestine, and to encourage Churches to fulfil their Gospel mandate, and stand in solidarity with those facing oppression and discrimination in Palestine and Israel.

The group encompasses people from all denominations, and welcomes new members that share the goals of peace, justice, and equal rights for all those that live in the Holy Land.

Prior to Covid, the group met twice a year in person, for one-day conferences when speakers were invited to present papers for discussion and debate. During 2019-2021 these meetings took place on-line, but we were delighted that in March 2022 the group met in person once more, for a 3-day residential at Gladstone Library in Chester.

During this time they heard from many renowned speakers on the subject of Israel/Palestine, and looked specifically at the Palestinian Cry for Hope, and how we can bring this to the attention of the UK Churches, and the World Council of Churches at their Assembly in Aug/Sep 2022.

As a result, this statement was released by the group, and endorsed by the Sabeel-Kairos Board of Trustees to be used as an advocacy tool: A Response to ‘Cry for Hope’: A Call to the Churches and the WCC Assembly 2022 | Sabeel-Kairos

From 2018-22 the Theology Group was led by Revd Brian Brown, an influential anti-apartheid campaigner, author, and retired minister in the Methodist Church. You can find out more about Brian, including a look at his latest book, here: “Apartheid South Africa! Apartheid Israel?” by Brian J Brown ( We are very grateful to Brian for his inspirational leadership.

In 2023 Revd. Nicholas Taylor became the new convenor of the theology group. Nicholas is a Biblical Scholar and an Anglican Priest, currently serving in the Scottish Episcopal Church. Nicholas has lived and worked in Swaziland, Zimbabwe, and South Africa, and spent 3 sabbaticals in Palestine/Israel. You can read his biography here: Nicholas Taylor introduction
