When Jesus walked this earth, he invited people to follow him. He encouraged them to learn from him, leaving behind what they already knew in order to go with him, get to know him and be changed by being with him.
Those who responded became disciples – followers who would learn to see the world through his eyes and see people with his compassion. These disciples had their worlds turned upside down and inside out by the unique man they followed. Then they turned our world upside down and inside out in his name.
As risen Saviour, Jesus invites us into that same relationship with him. Incredibly, we too are invited to follow him and to be his disciples. And in a world of increasing challenge and complexity, our discipleship really counts. Who else will act in Jesus’ name, unless we do?
Emmaus is a course designed to welcome people into the Christian faith and the life of the Church. It aims to involve the whole Church in evangelism, the nurture of new believers and ongoing Christian discipleship
