York Cursillo weekends are held at Wydale Hall – the Diocese of York’s retreat and conference centre on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, between Scarborough and Pickering. The Hall is a place of Christian service and hospitality set in 14 acres of beautiful North Yorkshire countryside near the village of Brompton-by-Sawdon.
York Cursillo weekends normally run from Thursday evening through to Sunday afternoon. They are led by a team of lay people and clergy, who have all experienced a Cursillo weekend themselves.
During the weekend the participants (or ‘Cursillistas’) will live, worship and learn together. Talks will be given by the leaders on some of the main areas of Christian life and faith – such as grace, faith and action. These areas will also be discussed in group workshops, and reinforced with prayer and quiet reflection.
