Couples’ Weekend Getaway: Montebello, QC

April 5-7, 2019

Great marriages are built! Like a great house – on a solid foundation, lovingly crafted, updated and renovated over time. A Weekend Getaway will strengthen your foundation – God’s way – and give you new tools to renovate your relationship.

For most couples it’s a chance to reconnect, re-establish the foundation and rekindle romance.

For others, it’s a fresh start.

For some, it will be the weekend that saves a marriage.

Wherever you’re at in your relationship, it’s a weekend to remember. The atmosphere is relaxed and warm, even fun. You’ll hear from real couples doing real life together… God’s way. You’ll be given time to process what you’re learning. And together, you’ll make a plan for a marriage that lasts a lifetime.

“The Certainty of Uncertainty” with Mr. Don and Mrs. Fay Simmonds

Uncertainty strikes all of us. For Don and Fay Simmonds it came in the words “liver failure.” They spoke about their life and death battle and their search for certainty in life’s most uncertain moments. There is much to celebrate!

The annual Christmas Dinner is the highlight of the Christian Embassy’s year. This year we welcomed over 200 diplomats, parliamentarians and business leaders, representing 55 nations.

The festive evening allows busy leaders and their spouses to relax, network and enjoy special music and meaningful reminders of the season. Diplomats appreciate what is often a first opportunity to experience Canadian Christmas traditions.
