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)
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.
