The Walk To Emmaus

Then their eyes were opened, and they recognised him … They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the scriptures to us?” – Luke 24:31-32 (NIV)

 

Do you long for spiritual renewal?

 

The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program that thousands of people around the world have undertaken to renew their heart, mind, soul and strength. It serves the individual and returns them to their local church closer to Jesus.

The program’s approach richly models the servanthood of Jesus and encourages Christ’s disciples to act in ways appropriate to being “a servant of all.”

What our Pilgrims say about their Emmaus experience

I’m thankful to God, my sponsor and the people involved in Emmaus, for connecting me to a wider Christian community -.a Christian community that does the Christian walk like God designed it, where all Christians come together to encourage each other to follow Jesus, live His way and be His hands and feet in this world, for His glory, not separated into different churches -where people can leave their minor differences and unite as one for Jesus.  Pilgrim South Sydney Illawarra.

 

 

 

 

 

The Walk to Emmaus experience

The Walk to Emmaus experience begins with a 72-hour retreat where you are loved and cared for by others in the Emmaus community. Over the 72–hours your are spiritually enriched by through life changing talks from by lay believers and clergy on the themes of God’s grace, disciplines of Christian discipleship, and what it means to be the church.

The course is wrapped in prayer and meditation, special times of worship and daily celebration of Holy Communion. The Emmaus community, made up of those who have attended an Emmaus weekend, support the 72-hour experience with a prayer vigil, by preparing and serving meals, and other acts of love and self-giving.

The Emmaus Walk typically begins Thursday evening and concludes Sunday evening. Men and women attend separate weekends.
