Emmaus Community

Alabaré's Emmaus Community was founded in 1996, and now comprises of several homes in Salisbury, providing long term supported living accommodation to adults with Learning Disabilities.

When coming to live in our Emmaus Community, each resident makes a commitment to share life together through eating and participating in spiritual development.  The story of the Walk to Emmaus in Luke's Gospel is the backdrop for the Community.  Each resident takes it in turns to prepare the evening meal, which is then eaten together, and prefaced with a prayer.  Our voluntary chaplain is working with the Community to gradually develop a programme which helps residents nurture and explore their Christian faith.

Our Emmaus Community regularly gather to share in hospitality, worship and the exploration of a bible story or theme eg. Holy Week and Easter.
