How many hours and how can Kairos be run?
40 hours, and can be run in many different formats : for example over 5 full days as a week’s intensive, or split into 3 days and 2 days; OR over 3 weekends OR a combination of evenings and Saturdays
We can't do that many hours, can we cut it down?
The whole package of Kairos activities covering 40 hours is essential to effect worldview change and practical application. However classroom time can be reduced to 25 hours with a commitment by participants to give 15 hours essential personal study time outside classroom hours.
How many people are needed for a course?
Ideally a minimum of 10 ( although it has been run with 6) and maximum of 25.
Can people do just part of Kairos?
No. Kairos is like a journey and each component builds into the next and no one section stands alone. However the course can be divided into 2 sections.
How much does it cost?
Costs vary depending on the type of schedule, hire of venue, number and cost of meals, need for accommodation, and travel expenses of external facilitators. In new situations accredited facilitators will incur travel and other expenses, until sufficient facilitators are available within the locality or church. Courses range from £50 - £200 per person depending on the above variables.
Does everyone need their own books or can we share books?
Every participant needs to purchase their own set of materials which is included in the price of the course. They cannot be shared as participants need to work with the material throughout the course. It is also valuable resource material in follow up from Kairos.
When and where are courses being held?
Go to the Courses section of this sight to find out planned courses.
What about people who can’t read very well?
We are in the process of recording the Kairos Reader onto audio so people can listen via an mp3 player. Often people read the material in pairs to assist those who are not competent readers. An "oral" version of Kairos is also being developed for those with poor literacy or visual learners.
Is Kairos adapted for young people?
Kairos works well with young people, with some additional activities and articles. A youth version of Kairos is being discussed but in practice many young people are enjoying Kairos as it is.
