About Us

The Purpose of Emmaus

The purpose of Emmaus is the renewal of the Church as the body of the risen Christ in the world through the renewal of church members as faithful and committed disciples of Jesus Christ. Emmaus expands participants' spiritual lives, deepens their discipleship, and rekindles their gifts as Christian leaders in their churches and communities. These aims are accomplished not only during the three-day Emmaus Walk, but also through participation in group reunions and community Gatherings, sponsorship and support of Walks, and service on teams. Persons whose spiritual lives are renewed and strengthened through Emmaus are called to share the grace they receive in their community and to be leavening influences in their local churches. The purpose of Emmaus is not fully realised during the three days of the event itself, but, rather, in the Fourth Day 

Our Emmaus community is based in North Queensland. Our Community covers from Bowen in the South to Thursday Island in the North, from the Pacific Ocean in the East to the Queensland Northern Territory border in the West. This gives us a land area about the size of Victoria. We hold nearly all of our functions at New Life Pastures Kennedy NQ. Due to the distances we have to travel Our training Days and Community Gatherings are held on a Friday night and Saturday. As this can be an expensive exercise, when we get together we really get together. A good time is had by all.

Our Community has been operation since 1996 when our first walks were held. Since then we have held a walk for both Ladies and Men each year.
