Cursillo Weekend: February 21-24, Gravatt Conference Center

Have you ever wondered, “What is my purpose in life? Why am I here? Does God have a plan for me? Are faith and belief the same thing?” If so, join us for a Cursillo weekend at Bishop Gravatt Conference Center in Aiken, SC. Cursillo weekends provide an opportunity to deepen your faith and to experience the love of God within a supportive and prayerful community. Cursillo is also a method of maintaining a personal relationship with Christ and the means to further spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Questions? Contact The Rev. Kellie Wilson, 672.4146.


Are you looking to expand your spiritual journey and hone your Christian leadership skills? One of the adult retreats/conferences we offer through Christ Church is Cursillo. "Cursillo" is a Spanish word meaning "short course." Cursillo Weekends are offered Thursday night through Sunday afternoons three times a year at the Gravatt Camp and Conference near Aiken, SC.

Cursillo is a transformative experience where God touches individuals' lives and hearts in a special way.

The cost of attending the three days is $150 and includes meals and lodging from Thursday evening through Sunday afternoon. Scholarships are available as needed. Learn more or download the registration form from the diocesan Cursillo website, or contact The Rev. Kellie Wilson, 672.4146, for more information.


Ultreya is a Spanish word meaning "onward" that pilgrims used to encourage each other along their journey. In the Cursillo community, we use it signify a time when we all gather together to share our experiences as Christians and walk the road together. The Ultreya meets once a month at various churches around the upstate. All people are welcome, even if you have not attended a Cursillo. For more information, contact The Rev. Kellie Wilson, 672.4146.
