We’re so glad that you’re here! Coming along to a new place can sometimes be confusing, so this page will give you a brief overview of some of the main things we do as a community.
Once a term, we hold a brief welcome session for those who have recently started coming along to Emmaus. These take place in the Circle Bar, which is on the top floor of the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, and happen immediately after the morning meeting. It's a great chance to meet some of the team, have a drink and hear from Pete & Sammy on who we are and why we do what we do.
Sunday services are the main events in our church week! We gather together as a whole community, worship & pray together, hear some great teaching, and spend time hanging out. We have great kids & youth work so there's lots for the little ones to do! Check out the Sundays page for info on what's happening this Sunday.
These are smaller groups of people which meet in people's homes around the Guildford area on a midweek evening. Each collective is different but generally each night will involve some hanging out, praying with each other and maybe working through a bible study or a specific area of the Christian walk. Head over to the collectives page for more information!
Prayer is right at the very heart of Emmaus. Our church is deeply rooted in the 24-7 Prayer movement, a global ministry which equips people & churches to pray, and has mission work in many countries. Prayer takes many forms, but 2 of the main ways which we engage in prayer as a community are through our prayer room, and our Kingdom Come evenings of worship & prayer. Head over to our prayer section for more info!
At Emmaus, we believe the Christian walk is relational, and we LOVE to party! We have termly parties, for example Summerfest every June, or the Winter Ceilidh every January. In July, we head en masse to Focus, an amazing week of camping, eating, worshipping and relaxing together. And in October we always go to the 24-7 Gathering for amazing teaching & equipping, and to meet others from across the world involved in 24-7. Check out our calendar for details on all of our special events!
