Three Day Weekend for those who work Sundays!

Lincoln Diocese are hosting a Cursillo "Three Day Weekend" in October, from the evening of Sunday 4th October until Wednesday 7th October 2015 - so it's not a weekend! This will be at the Old Palace Lincoln, which is a lovely venue in the shadow of Lincoln Cathedral.

This is a particular opportunity for clergy and others who work at the weekend.

Contact us to find out more or to book your place.

Ultreya April 23rd 2015

Our next Ultreya will be at Sutton Benger Church, Near Chippenham, Wiltshire  (Post Code SN15 4RH) on Thursday 23rd April at 7:30 for 8:00 p.m.

Ultreyas are the times when we gather as Cursillo in the whole Bristol Diocese for fellowship, worship, and mutual encouragement. Refreshments are served at the beginning. The word 'Ultreya' means Onward! in Spanish and is the traditional word of encouragement given to pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella. You are welcome to join us.

This event is particularly special for us as our National President, Sally Henniker-Major, will be visiting us from Durham.

We look forward to seeing you there. Contact us if you'd like more information.
