Sheffield Anglican Cursillo

Cursillo is a movement of the Church providing a method by which Christians are empowered to grow through prayer, study and action and enabled to share God’s love with everyone.

“It is possible to encounter God in many ways… encountering God is easy – it is following Christ afterwards that is the problem.”
Eduardo Bonnin – Cursillo Founder

Our Diocesan vision: 
“The Diocese of Sheffield is called to grow a sustainable network of Christ-like, lively and diverse Christian communities in every place which are effective in making disciples and in seeking to transform our society and God’s world.”

If we are to be effective in God’s mission to change the world, we ourselves must be renewed people. The 3-day Cursillo weekend offers a life-changing experience through which God inspires, renews and challenges us.

Everyone who shares communion in the Church of England is welcome to come on our Cursillo weekends. If you are interested, email or ring Jenny Moorby on or (01226) 2888571.

After you have experienced a Cursillo weekend, you are invited into a community of discipleship where you will be supported and encouraged as we grow in fruitfulness together.

What the Archbishops say about Cursillo…

“Through Cursillo the love of God is experienced afresh, an experience which draws us into prayer and compassionate action. Because of this, Cursillo is a much needed instrument for the renewal of the life of the Church today, and one for which I give thanks.”
Archbishop of Canterbury The Most Revd Justin Welby

“Cursillo is about making disciples; it transforms people’s lives and empowers them for service. Cursillo is active in most Dioceses of this Province, for which I praise God.”
Archbishop of York The Most Revd John Sentamu
