About

This summer Emmaus Rd will be heading to Focus again! It’s a week for God’s church family to gather together and glorify Him, share food, tell our stories, encourage, laugh, dance, pray, comfort and be filled by the Holy Spirit.

In 2016, 245 of us from Emmaus enjoyed an incredible week away together. Friendships were made, people got healed, the Holy Spirit moved, we ate, laughed and cried together from dawn till well into the night. Here are some highlights:

It is a valuable time for all of us at Emmaus Rd to immerse ourselves in the presence of God and spend time with each other. Be transformed so that you can return home and be part of transforming your workplace, home, community and beyond in the name of Jesus Christ.

Who can go to Focus? Focus is for HTB, members of the HTB network of churches, Alpha Partners and friends of church members.

The Emmaus Village

Emmaus Rd will have it’s own area (The Emmaus Village) with a large community marquee for a place to hang out and eat together. This is based amongst the camping tents and caravans.  We plan to have;

  • Hog Roast
  • Camp Fires
  • Daily catered meals
  • Brilliant kids and youth work and a student venue
  • Afternoon tea and cake (this is a favourite)
  • Chill out space
  • Plenty of space for kids to play and so much more…

Team

In 2016 Emmaus were part of kids, youth, cafe, logistics and Kingdom Come teams.  Joining a team is not only a great way to make Focus more affordable but you’re guaranteed to make a bunch of new friends! Team members receive discounts up to 100%.  More info on the Focus website.

Travel & Accomodation

Somerley House is about 90 minutes from Guildford by car.

Arrivals will be from 3pm on Monday afternoon. The full programme and main celebrations will start on the evening of Tuesday 25th.

Accommodation in the Emmaus Village is tents and caravans only.  2016 saw an impressive range of tents – who said camping can’t be luxury!  For details on electric pitches, camper vans and more head to the Focus website.
