Cursillo was first gifted to the Anglican Diocese of Wellington in 1988 from the Brisbane Diocese in Australia as part of a world-wide movement of the Christian Church which aims to "Change the Environments" through small Christian communities committed to living and spreading the Gospel.
Today this local "Mission Movement" offers a method by which our relationship with Jesus may be developed, lived out with the support of other Christians, and used by God to change the world about us. This is the true calling of a Matthew 22:37-39 experience.
