The purpose of Emmaus Emmaus aims to inspire, challenge and equip local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches and places of work. It provides a means by which we can grow together in love, grace and servanthood as members of the Body of Christ.
What happens at Emmaus Walks The “Walk to Emmaus” is a 72-hour experience (Thursday evening to Sunday evening). This time is spent studying, discussing, worshiping and living together at a suitable retreat center. Fifteen talks, delivered by clergy and laity, form the basis of discussions and projects. These present the themes of God’s Grace and how grace comes alive in the Christian Community and expresses itself in the world. You will have the opportunity to celebrate Holy Communion daily and begin to understand more fully the presence of Christ in the body of His believers. The prayers and acts of love of a living support community enhance this experience.
