As women, we are incredibly busy, and we rarely find time to experience close fellowship with each other. A weekend away gives us the chance to build relationships with other women in our church, grow spiritually, rejuvenate, and have fun. We’re returning to the beautiful Woodhouse Retreat Centre at Hidden Acres for a mini retreat to relax, connect, and be encouraged.

We’ll be meeting at Hidden Acres Mennonite Camp and Retreat Centre in New Hamburg (near Shakespeare) at 7:00pm on Friday, May 24 and departing at 1:00pm on Sunday, May 26. Be sure to bring a Bible, lawn chair, bedding for a single bed, a towel and toiletries.


Lodging: Woodhouse is a beautiful, spacious retreat centre with excellent facilities. You can find more information about Woodhouse at the Hidden Acres website.

Food: Meals and snacks included. We will try to accommodate special dietary needs.

Focus: The theme for the weekend is Rooted in Prayer. In Philippians 4:6-7, Paul reminds us: “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”

Registration deadline is Sunday May 12 and space is limited, so sign up today by filling out a registration form, available here or on the media table in the Westheights auditorium. Cost is $145 for the full retreat (including all meals and lodging), $55 for Saturday only (including 3 meals) and $95 for the full retreat (including all meals) with no lodging. Cheques can be made payable to Westheights Community Church.
