“Be still and know that I am God”
(Psalm 46:10).

We live in a busy world where it is very hard to be still. We can be pulled in various directions; kept busy by the many demands of our lives. After a while we begin to yearn for a break from all the activity and noise. We sense something is missing in our lives and our spirits call us to find a place where we can renew and refresh our tired bodies and our lagging spirits. We yearn for a sacred space where we can be still and hear the quiet voice of God that is always there but often drowned out by noise around us and inside us.

We invite you to enter the sacred space at Providence Renewal Centre. Our program team plans programs and retreats that will provide you with the opportunity to open the doors of your heart to an encounter with the Divine. Our diverse programs and retreats allow for the many ways God can speak to us. Come to one of our day-long, weekend, or week-long retreats and “you will find rest for your souls.” (Matt 11:29) We are waiting to welcome you!

Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.
Matt. 11:28

I attended the retreat “Seeking Spirituality: A Holistic Way to Heal” at Providence Renewal Centre in October 2014. It was a retreat made to order with a road map, a few travel tips, and even a bit of gas for the journey. Thank-you so much. I would certainly recommend this retreat to others. --Lucie T
