Nurturing Spirit Retreat

A  schedule is available,

send requests to

Guest Minister Laurie Gordon

Laurie Gordon is a spiritual director and an Evangelist in Community of Christ, living in Bend, Oregon. Laurie’s lifelong passion for contemplative practice and the natural world has deepened her sense that the universe reverberates with Holy Mystery. When we turn to stillness, listen deeply and awaken to an awareness of God’s Presence in and through all things, we touch this Mystery. We open to God’s invitation to be transformed; to embody Christ’s wisdom and compassion; to become vehicles of loving, Spirit-infused action in the world.

Please register early to

For E Cabins, preference will be given first to those with a need         and second to the first registered.

Please register early and advise us of any food allergies you have.

Registration is by donation

Canada West Mission Centre is continuing to offer camps and retreats at no charge to ensure that registration fees are not barriers to participation. Donations are accepted to help offset the costs of the events. As you consider your donations this year, please keep in mind that the high exchange rate between the US and Canadian dollars will result in higher costs to the Mission Centre to fund camps and retreats. Thank you for your past and continuing support of these events. Contact Debra Donohue for more information if needed. or 1-877-411-2632 ext 4

Community of Christ App for Android and IOS


As the Christmas decorations were packed away for another year, we found one last gift tucked under the tree! We’re excited to share this gift with you today. 

Community of Christ launched an app for Android and iOS devices. The app is available for download from Google Play and the App Store on iTunes.

With the Community of Christ app, you can read daily spiritual devotions, watch inspiring videos, stay in touch with mission happening around the world, and much more.

The app development was funded through the generous offerings received during the USA National Conference after event expenses were met.

We hope you enjoy this amazing gift!


Listening for the Soul in Vancouver

We will re-start our Listening for the Soul group January 27th at 7:30pm at the Vancouver church. All are welcome to join us for contemplation and spiritual practices.

Feel free to contact Shannon McAdam with any questions.
