The members of Cursillo St Davids are a mix of laity and clergy from across the diocese, who work collaboratively and who share their gifts for the good of all
The unique thing that Cursillo offers is ongoing support structures by means of small, regular group reunions which provide shared support and maintain mutual accountability.
There are also occasional larger gatherings for all the small groups to meet for fellowship and encouragement. God never meant us to be alone. People are called to be a company of disciples not isolated individuals and Cursillo provides a way for that to happen.
In all that we do, it is the grace of God in Christ which sustains, inspires and nourishes us. Cursillo is also a network of friends who are always there for one another, and a model of what church and Christian life should be like.
These are residential and normally take place on an annual basis in our diocese. Those attending follow a concentrated programme of talks, discussion, meditation and worship on a variety of themes which include:- Ideals; Grace: Prayer; Study; Action; Sacraments; Christian Community & Environment.
Cursillo weekends provide what are, for many, life-changing experiences through which God inspires, renews and challenges us. We, the team, support the pilgrims on their spiritual journey as they encounter a safe and loving environment to explore their own Christian faith.
You do not have to have completed the weekend to experience an Ultreya, which offers the opportunity for those who have completed a Cursillo weekend, to involve themselves in the follow up programme of support, fellowship & encouragement.
