Emmaus

To Emmaus for a rummaging
in the bric-a-brac arcade
and later for an omelette
quickly for us made
We found a jug for flowers
but nothing else today
just nice to come and have a browse
upon a Saturday

Pondered for a moment
looking at the ruins here
of what was once a priory
back in yesteryear
And then we headed homeward
for a nice hot cup of tea
The new jug proudly on the shelf
for everyone to see

Emmaus Communities enable people to move on from homelessness, providing work and a home in a supportive, family environment. Companions, as residents are known, work full time collecting and reselling donated furniture. This work supports the Community financially and enables residents to develop skills, rebuild their self-respect and help others in greater need. The Old Portslade Emmaus community has 53 resident companions and runs a second-hand bric-a-brac, furniture and clothes store along with an award-winning cafe.
