What is Cursillo?

Cursillo (pronounced kur-see-yo) is a Spanish word, meaning a short course. The Cursillo movement began in Spain some fifty years ago. It spread to North America, where in 1972 it crossed over to the Episcopal (Anglican) Church, with the blessing of the Roman Catholic Church, arriving in Great Britain in 1981. It is a world-wide movement, active now in around 30 dioceses in the UK, where it integrates with dioceses and parishes. The movement also has a presence in the UK in several Roman Catholic dioceses, and there in other denominations.

Cursillo provides a method by which Christians are empowered to grow through prayer, study and action, and are enabled to share God's love with everyone. We help people to take seriously their calling to discernment, engagement, and leadership in the place they are in.

So, what does Cursillo offer you?
- a stronger faith and a deeper experience of God's presence and purpose
- a lively sense of the Christian community and of prayer
- support in developing your gifts and ministry
- the confidence to be a Christian in the environment in which you live and work
- refreshment!
