Cursillo

Cursillo is a worldwide movement of the Christian Church which seeks to make it possible to live out what is fundamental to being a Christian. Cursillo is a Spanish word meaning short course. In this case it is a short course in Christian living. As a movement, it had its origin on the island of Majorca, Spain, in the late 1940′s as a means for reviving commitment in the Roman Catholic Church. Its method has been adapted by a number of denominations throughout the world.

The Anglican Cursillo Three Days is open to all practising Anglicans through a sponsorship program. Separate weekends are held for men and women as it has been found that people are less inhibited in same gender groups.

Cursillo offers a shared experience within a small group in a unique Christian community; a way of spiritual renewal through teaching, sacraments, devotions and ministry in an atmosphere of fellowship and trust.

Crosslinks

The Crosslinks group was founded in 1981, the International Year of the Disabled, in response to a request made to Archbishop Peter Carnley by concerned Anglican parents of persons living with an intellectual disability.  The group currently consists of people with intellectual disabilities, their families, friends, carers, members of the Anglican Parish of Floreat Park and other supportive people including members of the Friends of L’Arche, Perth.

We are looking forward to another great year in 2018, being loved by God and learning to love others more deeply with the love of Christ.

Mission to Seafarers

‘I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’  Matthew 25.35-36

Over the years the Mission to Seafarers in Australia has sought to help seafarers in all kinds of practical ways.  They are away from their families for long periods and may face loneliness and ill-health or injury.  The welcome from the MTS Chaplains and volunteers may be the only onshore hospitality they receive.

In the Diocese of Perth, the Flying Angel Club is an International Seafarers’ Centre and is situated at 76 Queen Victoria Street in the Port City of Fremantle.
