Bethlehem Centre

“A delightful mix of delicious food prepared with care, client-centered care … honoring privacy, freedom, dignity, comfort, environment, diversity. I wholeheartedly recommend Bethlehem to anyone seeking peace for the soul. Thank you.” – Susaan, Anglican Church Minister

The Bethlehem Centre offers a beautiful, peaceful environment, with 37 “cottage-at-the-lake” style rooms, full meal service and 5 meeting rooms with capacity ranging from 12 to 100. There is so much to experience in the quiet, natural location at the foot of Mount Benson on the shores of Westwood lake, including: an outdoor labyrinth, a finger labyrinth museum (possibly the only one in the world), a swimming beach just up the path, a fair trade gift shop, a wonderful library, plus outdoor forest walking paths and an organic vegetable garden! The Centre is priced affordably and the cost includes all of your meals. A successful residential event is the norm at the Bethlehem Centre, but dates book fast in the high season, so make sure you call to book your dates as soon as you can!

Kerith Retreats

Ministry leaders: do you need a break from the constant pressures and demands of life? Kerith Retreats provide a quiet sanctuary where you can receive from God and deepen your connection with Him.

A ministry of Focus on the Family Canada with centres in both Alberta and Manitoba, Kerith Retreats invites ministry leader couples and individuals to “come away and be still” for a seven-day retreat, filled with plenty of rest, delicious meals lovingly prepared and served as well as an opportunity to get filled up again in both group and individual sessions with seasoned ministry leaders.

Our guests say:

  • “Kerith was a much needed stop in the constant busyness of ministry life. I found rest, peace, and love from those who served and loved on us.”
  • “A peaceful, beautiful place with generous and gracious people where I can again experience the love of God which beckons me further in.”
  • “A valuable time of learning, reflecting, interacting, sharing, discovering and just being still.”
  • “I want every friend in ministry to experience this place with their spouse!”

You give out to many people every day; give us a chance to pour back into your lives!
