New Bristol Cursillo Spiritual Director

Revd Richard Hovey has been appointed the Spiritual Drector (clergy lead) of Cursillo in the Diocese of Bristol.

Cursillo is an international movement of Christians which provides resources within individual dioceses to encourage and support people to live and grow in their Christian life. This is focused around prayer, study, and action. We’ve been doing this in Bristol Diocese, through weekend events and regular small group reunions, since 2001 complementing other parish and diocesan activities. The word “Cursillo” is Spanish for “short course” – think of paella when you pronounce it!

Richard is a self supporting minister who lives in Corsham. He is passionate about seeing people thrive in their life and work and as his day job he runs coaching and consultancy business Finding True North to help leaders grow in effective business management. He is also a keen yachtsman.

We find Cursillo is valued especially by smaller parishes which can find it difficult to resource events and small groups to help people to grow in faith. As a priest I’ve found the ongoing nourishment and supportive community helpful too.
