"We need to hear that it all counts. We need to acknowledge the weariness of our world while also seeking real and daily moments of joy. We need to remember that all of life can be a prayer." -Sarah Speed

This Advent we will honestly name the ways in which the world, and we, are weary. There is much pain, war, heartache, and oppression at hand. And yet, what does it look like to be a people, alongside those at the first Advent in Palestine, who defiantly live into and seek joy in the midst of it all? How does a weary world in fact rejoice? We hope you'll join us for this meaningful season as we wonder together and try. 


Series Playlist


We meet at Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Church (927 W. Trinity Ave) in the chapel unless otherwise noted. The main entrance to our gathering is off the Gregson St. parking lot, near the playground. If you have preschool aged children or younger, please park in the Trinity Ave. lot and drop them off before heading to the gathering. If you enter off Trinity Ave, take the elevator or stairs up to level  2 and follow signs for the chapel.

Covid Safety

When Durham is in the orange/red designation (high spread of Covid-19), we ask that everyone over 2 years old wear a mask inside. When Durham is in the yellow/green (low-medium spread), masks remain optional. As always, please stay home if you are sick.


If you have any questions or concerns about joining us for the first time, please don't hesitate to reach out to one of our pastors or email admin@emmausway.net. We make this road by walking together, and we'd be fortunate to have you companion with us on this journey.
