Kainos Community is a faith-based facility operating in four prisons in England. The word "kainos" is Greek for "new beginning." Kainos Community seeks renewal of a prisoner’s life and relationships – relationships with self, with other prisoners, with victims, with families, and with God. Hence, it is a profoundly relational program. Steve Hook describes its roots in and comparisons with the Cursillo movement and Kairos weekends in prisons. He also profiles the actual programs that function within Kainos Community for the renewal and benefit of prisoners.
