Wider Community

Emmaus supports a variety of charities and sponsors two children.

At Home

Changing Tunes

Changing Tunes sends groups of musician into prisons to aid rehabilitation to reduce re-offending.  The common purpose of making music creates an environment for prisoners to improve self-esteem, build healthy relationships, and engage in an activity where hard work and perseverance brings rewards.

We help support a musician who goes into our local women's prison.

The Crisis Centre Ministries helps the homeless and people affected by drug-addiction in Bristol by running a drop-in café called 'The Wild Goose', putting on course to develop confidence and skills for those who have had addictions and running 'Spring of Hope', a ladies night shelter.

At Harvest time we send boxes of dried and tinned food to the Crisis Centre in Bristol to use in 'The Wild Goose'.
