News - Full Report
The Lord is forever calling us into a deeper relationship with Him. To help nurture our faith we should meet regularly with other Christians in the workplace, at church, in cell groups, accountability groups and our bi-annual Post Walk Gatherings.
You are invited to come to the Post Walk Gathering to welcome the pilgrims of Walks 73 and 74 and be inspired by their testimonies.
It is also a time of reconnecting and fellowship with Emmaus friends. The get-together, which also serves as the annual general meeting, will also include a bring ‘n share lunch.
Reminder to bring name tags, worship books, and wear bright colours and previous agape.

We will then go to St Francis United for praise and worship, lucky draw prizes and lunch.
