Cursillo


Cursillo is an opportunity for Christians to grow in God through Jesus Christ, primarily over one long weekend, and with the support of others from the church in Suffolk who have made a Cursillo themselves. Cursillo is a nationwide movement within the Anglican Church, working with the full blessing of the Bishop in this diocese. Cursillo is a Spanish word (pronounced kur-see-yo), which means a “Short course”; the aim of which is to reawaken people to the calling they received in their baptism to be witnesses to Christ.
 
Cursillo helps us:

  • To grow into a deeper relationship with God through the person of Jesus Christ
  • To discover our personal vocations and to develop our individual gifts for Christian service and   leadership.
  • To become more effective witnesses to Jesus Christ in our lives
  • To bring about and strengthen Christian commitment within a community of faith
  • To build up the witness of the Church in the world that may be renewed and transformed

 
Cursillo is for those members of congregations who are already committed in their Christian lives, and is intended to be a partnership between lay and clergy. Cursillo is part of the church, and is nurtured and sustained by its teaching, by prayer, the sacraments, and spiritual direction; and by the mutual support of small and larger groups of Christians.
