Cursillo Christchurch

Welcome to Cursillo in Christchurch Diocese.

Cursillo is an experience of Christian living. Its purpose is to strengthen and encourage us as Disciples of Christ, equipping us to become purposeful Christians in God’s world, and helping us to engage more deeply in the ministry and mission of the Church.

Wellington Diocese gifted Cursillo to Christchurch Diocese in April 1996
