Emmaus Youth Village

Opened by Ant & Dec, the Emmaus Youth Village is at the heart of the North East region and is in close proximity to many famous landmarks and attractions including Durham Cathedral, Bede’s World, Holy Island, Hadrian’s Wall, Beamish Museum and the Metrocentre.


The Emmaus Youth Village, which houses a group of international volunteers living in community, provides a variety of youth ministry opportunities across schools and parishes throughout the region.


Guests to the Emmaus Youth Village enjoy state of the art facilities which include an auditorium and dining hall accommodating up to 98 people. They can stay in twin and triple en-suite bedrooms spread across four attractive chalets and use spacious gardens, playing fields and a chapel for prayer and reflection.


Each year our Year 4 children are able to spend a few days at the Youth Village on a retreat.
