      This is the official manual of the Anglican Cursillo Movement of Australia.  It consists of seven loose-leaf booklets covering all aspects of the Movement from its history to the post-Cursillo.  Available separately or as a set in an A5 ring binder.


      Team Training Workshop

      A one day interactive workshop developed by Melbourne Diocese and designed as a first day training day for Cursillo teams.  It covers the purpose of Cursillo and the three day weekend, as well as being an introduction to writing talks and to table communities.

      Apostolic Action Workshop

      A national workshop that had its beginnings in the 1990's - the decade of evangelism.  This one day program looks at how to put legs on apostolic action in the context of Cursillo.  It explores the concept of environmental groups - starting, developing and maintaining groups -  and challenges all with the proposition that I can make a difference somewhere.  Developed for Cursillistas.

      Christian Action Workshop

      A parish based adaptation ( by Gippsland Diocese) of the Apolstolic Action Workshop.  It is used in conjunction with the Apostolic Action Workshop manual and it is also suitable for non-Cursillistas.  As the workshop begins, the participants are presented with material that highlights the needs of their local community.  How to form groups and to be effective in them and to make a difference in the community, is still the dominant theme.

      Spiritual Direction Workshop

      This workshop was developed in Gippsland in response to  perceived need to explore the subject of Spiritual Direction which, although referred to in the Cursillo three days, is often not given much attention afterwards.The workshop explores the questions of what spiritual direction is, what is a spiritual director and how to find one.  It also encourages a broader look at spirituality and includes Taize-style worship, Ignatian prayer exercises, meditations and a comprehensive resource list.  Suitable for non-Cursillistas.

      Development Resources

      These resources have been developed by various dioceses to promote the Cursillo Movement and to encourage Fourth Day involvement.
