frequently asked questions

who are you?

We’re Kairos Hollywood, a group of Jesus-followers, friends, neighbors and families in northeast Los Angeles. We desire to see missional communities thrive and reproduce in Los Angeles and beyond.

Kairos is a greek word for a divine moment – those chance encounters where the separation between the sacred and the ordinary seems almost nonexistent, and where we have a sense of divine clarity about ourselves and our world. We believe those kairos moments happen all the time.

Kairos Hollywood is sisters with Kairos Antelope Valley, part of Kairos Los Angeles, the Ecclesia Network, and the Missio Alliance.

what are you about?

You are a child of God, called into community, all for the sake of the city. That’s true of each of us.

We try to help each other live into that identity, calling, and mission through discipleship (learning to love God by following Jesus) and mission (learning to love others by serving and giving of ourself).

We’re about growth and transformation through discipleship: of you, of our community, and of our city.

We’re always trying to listen to what God is saying to us and to respond to God’s voice by taking active steps of faithfulness.

who’s in charge?

We have a team of equippers who lead together; following Ephesians 4, we raise up leaders from our church community “to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.” (Ephesians 4:12)

where do you meet?

Every other Sunday we meet at 10 am at 4903 Fountain Ave Los Angeles, CA 90029 in a space called the Fountain Room. We’ve been meeting here since 2002. On the Sundays we aren’t in the Fountain Room, we meet in homes around the city.

why do you have two types of gatherings?

Before 2013, we had a very typical church model where we met every Sunday in our church building while also meeting during the week for small groups. Around 2013, we decided to make these community groups a core focus of what we’re doing here at Kairos, and we moved them to every other Sunday as part of our church rhythm.

We believe true disclipeship comes from missional living, when we are engaged in each other’s lives in intimate ways and when we can create open spaces for prayer, discussion, and worship. Church is not about a specific building, pastor, or sermon, but the disclipeship that comes from pursuring a relationship with Christ.

Today, we alternate between our Sunday Gathering (a time of worship, prayer, Eucharist and Scripture) and our Sunday Community Groups (a time of food, conversation, community, and prayer).

how do I know which week it is?

See our community calendar or get on our email list.

what about kids?

We love kids and families and they are integrated into our life together as a community.

We balance times when children are integrated together with adults (we don’t mind the noise), and when kids have supervised time to grow and play together. Usually on Sunday Gatherings we have a separate space for kids to play and learn about Jesus.

Our hope is that our community can help parents help their kids grow as followers and disciples of Jesus. We invite our kids into the same questions we ask adults: what is God saying to you and what will you do in response?
