Bethlehem Centre welcomes individuals and groups exploring spirituality and seeking a non-judgmental sacred place for contemplation, learning, and community.

Bethlehem Centre

Find tranquility, inspiration and soulful nourishment when you or your group make Bethlehem Centre your home for retreat.  Located on beautiful Westwood Lake, surrounded by stunning forest, restful accommodations and homemade comfort food makes the perfect backdrop for an exceptional experience.

With a variety of gathering spaces for groups and individuals to learn and explore faith, build community and leadership development.

We gratefully acknowledge that we live, work and play on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples.


Open to all, we are committed to supporting spiritual exploration, and leadership development where all people can be embraced and come together to learn, share, and grow.

We believe in the power of inclusivity and recognize the importance of prioritizing the well-being of people of differing abilities.
