October 15-16, 2020
Leaders from Southern Ontario met for a 24 hour overnight gathering for mutual sharing, conversations, prayer and building friendships. Peer Care Retreats were created to provide a safe environment to strengthen the leader’s heart through encouragement, connection, affirmation and prayer. Here’s what some of our participants had to say about this experience:
“36 hour with other like-minded female leaders is absolutely necessary! I have left feeling refreshed, challenged, and even more confident in moving forward in my calling.” Marlene O’Neill
“Life-giving interaction with authentic women of God. A stream in the desert to my soul.” Marilyn Cebula
“The ‘body of Christ’ at work through friendship, scriptural discovery and prayer – so powerful.” Ruth Coghill.
‘Peer Care Retreat- no better place or time to find healing, a calling, a renewal of soul, than amongst women joined together in Holy Spirit-led prayer and sharing. A breath of cleansing and hope.” Mary Lloyd
Peer Care Retreats were created to provide a safe environment to strengthen the leader’s heart through encouragement, connection, affirmation and prayer. They are an overnight get-away with like-minded leaders where stories and leadership lessons are shared in a mentoring environment and spiritual Sabbath.

February 2019 Peer Care Retreat
Spending quality time with leaders is always an enriching experience. On Feb 1 and 2, 2019 Women Together hosted a Peer Care Retreat—an overnight getaway for leaders. We shared everything that we are learning in life from our development journey to our devotional times. We prepared meals, had many spontaneous fun moments, and prayed for each other. Everyone had the opportunity to sit in the “prayer chair” as we lifted each woman in prayer—it is always one of the highlights of our time together. Peer Care Retreats are rich peer mentoring experiences where we develop deep spiritual friendships.

Imagine the delight to come apart for twenty-four hours over night, a time to refresh and renew our spirits!
