The Organization

Bethlehem Centre is an interspiritual Centre offering sacred gathering place for groups and individuals. Offering programs that help people evolve in ways that expand consciousness and our connectedness to each other, our communities and our planet. We value traditional welcoming hospitality with simple, ‘cottage at the lake’ style accommodations and nourishing food for retreaters who come to stay. Our green initiatives and on-going care and attention for the lakefront property are evident in our day to day work. We take pride in being an inclusive employer that embraces and honours the uniqueness, inherent value of each human being. Learn More.

The Position

Our work-stay residents serve as a bridge between staff and guests. While there is a rhythm to the day, no two days are the same, which means we are looking for individuals who are adaptable, easy going, strong communicators with a real eye for what needs to be done. Responsibilities can range from kitchen, guest services, housekeeping to yard and everything in between. This live in position offers room and board in exchange for twenty-five hours of work per week. We ask for a minimum four month commitment and extended stays can be requested. Read what other residents have to say…Work Stay Resident Spotlight
