Do you need to take a walk?

  • Written by  Lizzy Ainsworth

What is an Emmaus Walk? Is it some sort of mysterious walk that you take with a group of hymn-humming Christians that somehow radically changes your life?

Well not exactly. Certainly hymns are sung, but so are choruses. And a life-changing walk is embarked on, but its spiritual, not physical.

In fact, on an Emmaus walk camp, exercise is the last thing on your mind, though you will certainly need it afterwards once you’ve finished consuming the incredible food that has been delivered to you at each meal time.

The Emmaus walk weekend is a specially designed camp to bring each person who attends deeper into their walk with God, to shower on them the love of God, and to see that person empowered to springboard into the ministry that God is calling them to. It’s a retreat with a twist, a time for refreshing, with incredible surprises and blessings to each individual throughout the weekend.

Covered in prayer from beginning to end by a world wide vigil, along with an on-site vigil, it’s a time for restoration of relationships, encouragement, and discussions of deep truths that are presented in a number of short talks.

The walks are run by lay people with oversight from various pastors from different denominations.

Participants are sponsored to attend by a person who has previously attended a weekend themselves.

The next Emmaus walks are scheduled for 3-6 April (Men’s) and 10-13 April (Women’s).

If you find yourself in need of refreshing, please contact Rod Jurgs, the Darling Downs Community Lay Director on 4633 2323 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for a chat about how to attend one of these weekends.
