Weekends postponed due to COVID-19

Following the guideance from the UK Government and in accordance with the 'lockdown' restrictions we are now under, many diocesan Cursillos have cancelled their pilgrim weekends.

As of 31 March, all weekends to the end of June have been cancelled or postponed.

Please check out the Forthcoming Weekends up-to-date information as we get it.


The inspiring setting of Chester Cathedral rang with joyful sounds of Eucharist on Sat August 31 as it hosted this year’s National gathering of British Anglican Cursillo. During the day Richard Stephens, Chair of Kairos UK, gave a challenging talk on the work of Cursillo in prisons, bringing hope and God’s love to prisoners under the name of Kairos. The colourful congregation caused a stir by parading the embroidered banners from each Cursillo Diocese through the streets led by City of Chester Brass Band.

Bishop Peter spoke of the renewal and enthusiasm felt by Christians on the three day course which is ‘Cursillo’ and how it continues into the ‘fourth day’; the rest of their lives. The Service certainly reflected that joy and visitors to the Cathedral on the Saturday afternoon were encouraged to join in the celebration. One visitor on a day trip from Hull was so inspired she hurried away to search online for a local Weekend. For the Christians of the Chester Diocese it’s easy- the answer is Foxhill House and Woodlands, Frodsham from Thursday October 24 to Sunday October 27 or Wistaston Hall, Crewe, 28-31 May, 2020. See you there?
