British Anglican Cursillo Council is the umbrella organisation for activity and furtherance of Anglican Cursillo in the UK. It itself is not a charity – prohibited by law in the UK because a charity cannot preside over other charities – but operates to such principles.
Who makes up BACC?
The British Anglican Cursillo Council is made up of:
Area Reps: covering sections of Great Britain
Servant Community: some specific roles, such as webmaster
Diocesan/Provincial officers: The Lay Directors and Spiritual Directors from each participating province or diocese, along with a third BACC rep from each.
What does BACC do?
The British Anglican Cursillo Council has 3 purposes:
- To be a resource to the Anglican dioceses in which Anglican Cursillo is active.
- To be a communication “hub” that links all the affiliated dioceses.
- Exercise oversight of the operation of Anglican Cursillo in the United Kingdom in accordance with the licence agreement and agreed Constitution that exists with Roman Catholic Cursillo of the United States of America.
BACC will assist all affiliated dioceses to develop in adult Christians a consciousness of their mission to become leaders in the work of Spiritual renewal.
The BACC officers will consist of a President, Secretary and Treasurer who shall all be lay persons, and a National Spiritual Director who shall be ordained in the Anglican Faith tradition.
There will also be a Standing Committee consisting of members drawn from the British Anglican Cursillo Dioceses who will attend meetings with the BACC officers to develop and administer all aspects of British Anglican Cursillo within the United Kingdom.
