EMMAUS HOUSE

Emmaus House is an interfaith ministry that feeds breakfast to 200+ hungry people each morning, Monday through Friday. Begun in 1982, Emmaus House is located on the first floor of the  Christ Church parish house at the corner of Abercorn and Bryan Streets, with the entrance on Bryan Street. The founding congregations for Emmaus House are Christ Church, Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, First Presbyterian Church, First Baptist Church and the Lutheran Church of the Ascension. Members from Christ Church and other area congregations volunteer to help serve the meals, and at Christ Church, the second Sunday of each month, parishioners are asked to bring breakfast food items to donate for our Emmaus House “Ingathering Sunday”. Collection bins are provided at each entrance to the Church. If you would like to know more about volunteering or donating to this vital ministry in downtown Savannah, please call the Church office.
