Walk to Emmaus

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.

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

  • "I was blessed to grow up knowing about God. I was invited to my own Pilgrim Walk through a faithful Emmaus community member and it was the most beautiful invitation into a God-focussed, hands and feet kind of community. I’m so humbled by the love, kindness, practical support, laughter and outside-the-box thinking that our Community uses each year to ensure our Gatherings and Walks go ahead."
  • "The Walk to Emmaus is the most brilliant tool for renewal and energising of Christians that I know. It is also a brilliant device for training people with leadership skills in a supportive environment. Pastors who have seen this have made great use of it. I can also name hundreds of people for whom the Walk to Emmaus has transformed their lives! I realise what a fantastic gift from God this ministry is!"
  • "I love that Emmaus is a community that cares for people, no matter the individual denomination. Jesus commands his followers to go and make disciples and the Walk to Emmaus encourages and gives people the tools to do this. Emmaus is not a Church unto itself. It is an experience that assists people to be sent out to their worlds after being changed, to serve God however that looks."
  • "I love the way God uses the Emmaus walk experience to form a unified team of people who sometimes come from very different backgrounds and who work together in harmony to give others an experience of a loving Christian community which results in a rekindled commitment to Christ our Lord."
  • "The Walk to Emmaus has opened my eyes and heart to a deeper revelation of God. The talks spoke to me on many different levels and challenged me to take a fresh look at my Christian walk. I am still challenged by different talks at different times when I have served on team. The walk has revealed in me a servant heart and a desire to help others meet with God on a much deeper level. It has been a life-changer for me, both personally and spiritually."
  • "The Walk to Emmaus has had a profound impact on my life. Not only have I experienced God's love in new ways through community and agape gifts, but the teaching on the priesthood of all believers and the body of Christ has impacted my understanding of my role in the wider church and my ministry for the Lord amongst those I rub shoulders with each day."
