EMMAUS GROUPS

Emmaus Groups are small groups of people who meet mid-week for fellowship, prayer and bible study. Belonging to a small group is immensely encouraging as we seek to walk with Jesus day by day. It's also helpful for getting to know people better and for building up a sense of belonging within Emmanuel.

Each Emmaus Group has its own distinct character. The Emmaus Group year follows a common pattern:

  • in the autumn all the Emmaus Groups will follow the same theme, but using materials of their choosing and in their preferred style

  • in the spring term the sermons in church and what the Emmaus groups study will be based on a book to be chosen the clergy

  • in the summer term each group will be free to choose whatever they want to do and how

Over a term the pattern of meetings will consist of:

  • regular meetings to pray, worship and study the bible together

  • social events – including an event once a term which includes children, wider family, friends

  • some form of service to Emmanuel and outreach to the wider community

 

There are a number of Emmaus groups meeting at various times during the week. If you'd like to join an Emmaus group please let Ali know on ali@emmanuel-loughborough.org
