UK Ultreya 2022

Cursillistas of the Diocese of Southwark and London are jointly hosting the National Ultreya in the capital city of London on 3 September 2022.

< Book your place NOW >

London is split into our two Dioceses; south of the river Thames is Southwark, overseen by Bishop Christopher Chessun; north of the river is London, overseen by Bishop Sarah Mullally.

The National Ultreya begins with a welcome and prayers from +Sarah prior to the Walk of Witness from the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral. We then cross the river Thames over the Millennium Bridge towards the Tate Modern, before passing Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the Golden Hind on route to the Millennium Court at Southwark Cathedral. As we walk along the riverside, we can see the Gherkin, the Scalpel, the Walky-Talky and the Cheese-Grater.

The day will unfold as follows:
0930Gather at the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral
1000The Walk of Witness to Southwark Cathedral
1045Coffee in the Cathedral
1130Ultreya, Witness Talks, Gospel Responses and Group Reunions
1230Lunch – see below
1400Gather for singing

Details of any proposed evening activities will follow in due course.


At St Paul’s Cathedral – lots of coffee shops to be found nearby in Paternoster Square and in St Paul’s itself.

At Southwark Cathedral – coffee and snacks in the Cathedral café, and for lunch a whole selection of world foods from the Borough Market (next to the Cathedral), or the many eateries in nearby Borough High Street. Or of course, bring your own and eat in the grounds of the Cathedral.
