Welcome to Emmaus Ministries in Australia.
As well as our popular 3 day Walk to Emmaus, we also offer our Chrysalis young adults weekend and our Face to Face non-residential program for seniors.

Christ’s blessings as you journey with Him.

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.

Face to Face

Face to Face is specially adapted to meet the needs of Men and Woman 60 years and over and/or those who cannot cope physically with a Walk to Emmaus program.
There are 8 sessions structured in a flexible way. Face to Face will strengthen your spiritual life as well as that of your family, friends and Church.

  • "Emmaus is a great training ground for disciples, both pilgrims and those who return as team members. It has certainly helped God get through to me over the years."
  • “The Chrysalis Flight I attended taught me so many things, including that regardless of I was treated by others or what I believed about myself, God loved me no matter what. Knowing that has literally saved my life more than once.”
  • "My 4th Day has been mountain-top, low valley, as life often is. Knowing God walks with me through the good and the bad makes the journey possible. Every day with Jesus, is sweeter than the day before"
  • “Wow, The Walk to Emmaus was absolutely life changing for me. Since the weekend I have a totally new, closer and loving relationship with Jesus."
  • "Going on the Walk to Emmaus introduced me to an amazing community. Their willingness to serve in countless ways to show others how much God loves them astonished me on my walk and continues to do so more than a decade later."
  • "The Walk to Emmaus experience was a life changing event for me. Experiencing the love and grace of God in so many ways, enabling me to go back to my Church and community to serve in ways i never thought i could."
  • "My walk to Emmaus changed my life. It was the most extraordinary human example of God’s love that I have ever experienced."
