Cursillo (pronounced "kur-see-yo") is a Spanish word meaning "short course."
Cursillo in Chester diocese began and continues with the blessing of our Bishop.
A chance to experience the love and grace of God and the joy of Christian fellowship.
A way of building a continuing Christian community to help one another on our spiritual journey.
It embraces the insights and good teachings of all the traditions in the Anglican church.
It is a movement within the church and not outside it, so it works together with groups and organisations in a parish.
During these three days, those attending live and work together, listening to talks given by different people, both lay and ordained.
You will hear talks on Ideals, Grace, Obstacles to Grace, the Life of Prayer, Study, Action, Lay People in the Church, Sacraments and the Christian Community.
The talks lead to lively discussion in small groups.
Learning, praying, sharing, singing, laughing and living together is the basis for discovering what it means to say, "We are the body of Christ."
Just be open to what happens.
Simply take a fresh look at what the Church has always taught - Good News - the miraculous and joyous discovery of Christ's endless love.
You aren't expected to know or do more, just reflect on being more!
