     Alabama Presbyterian Cursillo | Intentional faith development

    “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.”
    — II Corinthians 5:17

    Retreats take place at nearby Camp Beckwith

    Alabama Presbyterian Cursillo #37 will take place on a Thursday through Sunday (watch for dates to be announced) at nearby Camp Beckwith. The moderator will be announced later.

    Everyone in Cursillo should be praying for folks to invite as pilgrims and also to join with us in a Fourth Day reunion group.

    Applications are on the website at

    Cursillo — Spanish for “short course” — is a three-day retreat designed for Presbyterians who desire to renew their faith and to develop a deeper understanding of their relationship with Christ. The laity-led retreat is organized around a series of talks given by lay people and clergy who serve as staff. Along with these talks there are opportunities to worship, fellowship, sing, and enjoy uplifting music, celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, and participate in group discussions.

    Just like other programs, Cursillo is a tool to assist participants in spiritual renewal. It is not designed to provide a conversion experience, but is directed at committed Christians who earnestly desire to grow in Christ. It is neither the beginning nor the end of one’s faith journey.

    If you have questions, many of Swift’s members have been pilgrims and been on staff and would love to talk to you about going. 


    Thursday through Sunday (dates to be announced)
