Chelmsford Cursillo® Supporting and encouraging our lives as Christians

Website designed and maintained by Laurie Main

What is expected of me?

There is no specific response expected of you.

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.

And then ... ?

What does Cursillo offer?

What is a Cursillo weekend?

This is the first three days: It begins on a Thursday evening and ends the following Sunday afternoon.

During these three days, those attending live, work and worship together, listening to talks given by different people, both lay and ordained.

You will hear talks on subjects like Grace, Obstacles to Grace, Faith, Study, Sacraments, Evangelism, and the Christian Community in Action.

The talks lead to lively follow up 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.”

Is that really all?

Yes! There are no tricks, no gimmicks, no hidden mysteries only revealed to the initiated. There are some surprises, but that's only because the Christian life is full of surprises.

You aren't expected to know or do more, just reflect on being more!

The three days are not an end in themselves but very much a beginning. Their purpose is to lead us into…

… The Fourth Day

The Fourth Day is where we continue our journey together, and is the most important part of Cursillo. We support and encourage one another as we seek to live and work to God’s praise and glory.

Sound too good to be true?

Then come and see for yourself!
