Kairos Prison Ministry Australia
Helping those impacted by incarceration, through the love, hope and faith found in Jesus Christ.
What We Do
Kairos programs offer to prison residents, their families, and those who work with them the opportunity to receive God’s forgiveness through faith in Jesus Christ, and to grow in their faith and servanthood in Christian community.
Kairos Inside for Incarcerated Men and Women
Kairos Inside is a course in Christianity inside the prison for 3 to 5 days where participants witness Christ’s love through the service of Christian volunteers. This is done through talks, discussions and music with the aim of developing Christian communities inside prisons.
for Women impacted by the imprisonment of family or friends
Kairos Outside is conducted in the community outside the correctional institution. Kairos Outside is a special Weekend retreat designed to support the female relatives/friends of the men and women who are or have been incarcerated.
Kairos Torch for Youth
Kairos Torch offers unconditional love and acceptance, encouraging young men and women to share their life journey through participation in a long-term mentoring process.
My brother had his life transformed in a Kairos Inside program many years ago. It was through Kairos that he found freedom in the Lord Jesus Christ. Kairos was just so good for him. He really came to know the Christ he had heard about in his Sunday school days.
There are women there who were Christians before they came to prison. But often these women don’t have the courage to show their faith. But when programs like Kairos are in [the prison], it provides a fellowship and it provides a sisterhood, I guess, and it encourages women to live their faith in a hard environment.
The experience of having a loved one in prison impacted every area of my life. As a guest on Kairos Outside, I finally came to terms with that impact. Volunteering with Kairos now gives me the opportunity to share that gift with others and bring light out of the darkness.
Having experienced a family member being incarcerated, I volunteered for my first Kairos Outside weekend. That was the beginning of an incredible journey, making lifelong friends, attending Reunion dinners, even travelling interstate to help set up new KO branches.
There are many ways to support Kairos
Partner with Kairos as a volunteer, a prayer partner or many other ways to help shine a light in the darkness.
As a registered not-for-profit charity, Kairos Prison Ministry Australia depends greatly on the generosity of friends like you.
