Who Should Attend A CLW?

The CLW is for all who want to know more about Cursillo. All are welcome, lay or ordained. Those who have any leadership role should certainly attend before, or as soon as possible after taking office.

What is Included?

An opportunity for sharing in worship & fellowship, hearing talks on the following and discussing their content with people from other diocesan / provincial movements:

  • The Purpose of Cursillo including: Cursillo and the fundamentals of Christian Living
  • The Church and the place of the movement
  • Forming a Movement including: The Fourth Day First, The Groups – Reunion and Ultreya, Spiritual Direction
  • Making the Movement Work including: The Servant Community, The Pre-Cursillo, Authentic Cursillo, The Cursillo Leader
  • Looking Ahead
  • Taking the information and ideas back to the diocese and sharing them with the leaders there.

Who Leads a CLW?

Those who make up the leadership of the presenting team for a CLW have themselves already attended a CLW and are leaders from within the British Anglican Cursillo movement. Four people make up the team which includes a Spiritual Director.

CLWs run from 5.30pm on the Friday evening to around 2.00pm on Sunday. The full cost of the weekend is £200 which includes board and room. A £60 per person non-returnable deposit is required on booking. The balance is due one month before the week-end. It is recommended that private holiday insurance is obtained. Please send application forms to Anglea Smith (see below for contact details).

Further Information

Bookings should be made via the booking form no less than 2 months before the weekend and places are allocated on a first come first served basis. (Though last minute places are sometimes available – contact the CLW Administrator to enquire).

These two days are a lifting up of the ideals of the Cursillo method. A CLW can be an inspiring and spiritual experience, but does not attempt to repeat the Cursillo Weekend experience.
