Kairos Prison Ministry Australia

Kairos Outside Sydney

About Us

The Sydney branch of Kairos Outside was established in 1999 – the first regional group in
Australia. Our goal is to provide support for women living in the Greater Sydney region who
have, at any time in their lives, experienced the challenges associated with having a friend
or family member in prison. Support for Guests begins with a residential weekend at the
beautiful Mt Schoenstatt Centre in Western Sydney in which they are able to connect with
other women who have been through similar experiences. This support continues through
regular reunions and opportunities to network in smaller local groups.

To date, a total of around 630 Guests have attended Kairos Outside Sydney weekends that
are held twice each year. A common assumption is that as Sydney is a state capital city with
many prisons, the potential for sourcing Guests is limitless. In actual fact, it is easy for
women who feel the shame and misunderstanding associated with having someone in
prison to hide themselves away in a big city. The greatest challenge for Kairos Outside
Sydney leaders is how to make this unique ministry of love, hope and support more widely
known – and how to attract new team members to commit to this amazing God-given
