Cursillo offers to committed Christians a community of discipleship, in which we are supported and encouraged as we grow in fruitfulness as saints and apostles. The 3-day Cursillo weekend provides what is for many people a life-changing experience through which God inspires, renews and challenges us.

The unique thing that Cursillo offers the Church is the ongoing support structure by means of small ‘group reunions’. These meet regularly to provide mutual support and maintain spiritual accountability, and are complemented by occasional larger gatherings for fellowship and encouragement. In all that we do, it is the grace of God in Christ which sustains, inspires and nourishes us.

Seek ye first the kingdom of god

Cursillo’s vision is of a world transformed by the love of God – nothing less than the kingdom of God on earth.

This is the longing in the heart of God who calls us to active service and involvement, following in Christ’s footsteps to complete our personal calling and the mission Jesus began. God can use us all, despite our shortcomings, frailty and brokenness, and He encourages us to use our gifts and abilities to make a difference for good in our daily lives.

Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened.”

(Matthew 13.33)

Cursillo is founded on the belief that radical change for good is possible within any aspect of human life through the action of relatively small numbers of Christian people who work with dedication and commitment to bring about such change, relying on the guidance and empowering of the Holy Spirit.

Renewed people, renewed world

If we are to be effective in God’s mission to change the world (in accordance with his values), we ourselves must be renewed people.

Cursillo puts before us God’s call to us to be

SAINTS – people transformed by the grace of God, and

APOSTLES – people sent to share in God’s mission to the world.
