Elim Fellowship Annual Conference & Retreat
September 17th, 18th & 19th, 2018
At Elim Lodge Christian Resort & Conference Centre
Located on Pigeon Lake, just North of Peterborough, Ontario
Strengthen Encourage Connect Commission
Once again our Annual Retreat will be held at Elim Bible Camp located in Peterborough Ontario on the picturesque shores of Pigeon Lake.
This venue was chosen to provide a more central location for our Ontario and Quebec constituents as well as to provide a more relaxed atmosphere that would be favourable to supporting two of Elim Canada’s core values; freedom of worship in which we experience the manifest presence of God and the ministry of the Holy Spirit among us and the building of strong relationships.
Let me share with you some comments from last year’s retreat:
“I have never enjoyed a conference as much as this one. Meaningful worship, practical teaching, joyful positive atmosphere.”
“This was not a conference; it was an encounter with God!”
“I so enjoyed the unity in affirmations from God and the prophetic flow.”
“I enjoyed the fellowship with all present and most of all the praise and worship to God. Completely intimate worship, His presence always here.”
I would like to personally invite you to come to this year’s retreat that together we may be strengthened and encouraged in the Lord and with one another as we connect in new and deeper ways. I trust that as we come together your commission will be renewed and your heart filled with a refreshed passion for our Lord Jesus Christ.
President, Elim Fellowship Canada

Choosing your facility:
As mentioned, the accommodations are of various shapes and sizes from 2 bed motel suites to 3 bedroom apartments. If there is a group traveling that would like to stay together you can request an apartment with 3 or 4 separate bedrooms but a common sitting and coffee/snack area. All of your requests should be specified on the registration form and we will do our best to suit your needs. You should also let us know if you have any food allergies or require “main floor only” as many of the units have stairs.
