Emmaus Colchester was set up in 1999 by a team of trustees and volunteers who wanted to create an Emmaus community in the town.

Colchester is one of 29 communities spread across the UK, providing a home and support for more than 800 people who are known as companions. The movement continues to grow, with a further five groups working to establish new communities.

With your support we are able to make a real difference to people’s lives.
