Bethesda's mission is 'to be a place to help people be renewed by knowing Jesus Christ through the experience of the Holy Spirit.' (1 Corinthians 2:1-5).
'Be Still and know that I am God' Psalm 46:10
Bethesda Renewal Centre is a Christian retreat centre just west of Ottawa. The centre's name was taken from the Pool of Bethesda which is mentioned in the Gospel of John, chapter 5. We believe Jesus wants to meet, heal and renew His followers through the power of the Holy Spirit as they seek to be still and hear His whisper in nature, in worship, in community, and in listening prayer.
