Emmaus Encounter Days
On the road to Emmaus Jesus asked the disciples the simple but essential question, “What things?” It was important to him that they shared with him their disappointments and discouragements of the past three days. Having spent time with Jesus they returned to Jerusalem with fresh energy and hope.
Emmaus Encounter, is a space to have the opportunity to respond to the question, “What things?” in the light of the COVID pandemic. To notice the difficulties and challenges and to encounter Jesus afresh in preparation for the new journey that lays ahead.

This is an opportunity for Church leaders to take time out from the their normal duties to reflect before God on the impact that the pandemic has had on them. This will be facilitated by Rachel Watson (NHS Mental Health Chaplain) & Colin Norris (SCBA Team Leader) in a small group setting on Zoom. It will include time to reflect, pray and share in a safe place. It is designed as a reflective and restorative prayer journey moving through some of the mental, social and emotional ministry challenges that the pandemic has raised.
