Reunion Groups


After completion of an Emmaus walk, the best way to stay accountable to others and grow closer to the Lord, is through participation in a reunion group. A reunion group is made up of 2-6 individuals that meet weekly to encourage each other to live wholly in the grace of God. It is the sponsor s responsibility to get the new community member involved in a reunion group, even if that requires leaving their own group to form one with their pilgrim.

If you are not in a reunion group, here are some of the names of the reunion groups that may be close to you. If you want to find out more about these groups, please contact us at reunion@nearthecross.org. If you are ready, we can help you get a new reunion group started.

Why are some groups closed? Some groups consider the ideal size is six members, so they close the group when they reach that number. Occasionally, members will move and the group will be opened. Some groups have no size limit.

If you are involved in a weekly reunion group that is not listed here, please email Reunion Groups at reunion@nearthecross.org. We will try to maintain the information so that we can better inform new community members of current reunion groups.

If you are not yet involved in a reunion group, please contact your sponsor for information. The aim of the Walk to Emmaus is to inspire, challenge and equip local church members for Christian action, and to achieve that it is helpful to have a small group of people encouraging you weekly!
