Welcome everyone and may God’s grace be evident as you live your life for Him.
We invite you to come and join us on an Emmaus Walk.

Walk to Emmaus

The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program that thousands of people around the world have undertaken to renew their heart, mind, soul and strength.
The program’s approach richly models the servant hood of Jesus and encourages Christ’s disciples to act in ways appropriate to being “a servant of all.”


Chrysalis is a weekend experience which takes a look at Christianity as a lifestyle.
It is designed to strengthen and renew the faith of young Christians and helping to renew the Church.
The content of the weekend focuses on God’s grace, how one experiences Christ as a friend and how one is called into discipleship.
