Ladies Conferences 2023

May 26-28 or June 2-4, 2023

A weekend of personal retreat, refreshment and renewal is in store for you

God continues to offer us hope, peace, love, faithfulness, and more through His Son, Jesus Christ in whatever circumstances surround us. A weekend awaits designed for women to step away from everyday life to spend focused time in His Word, be quiet in His presence, and enjoy being a little spoiled too. The staff ladies at Capernwray Harbour welcome women to join them to be refreshed, renewed, and recharged this spring during the Ladies Conference Weekends.

Conference Speaker

Jessica McLean

Jessica, born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area of California, attended her first year of Bible School at Capernwray Québec in the late 90s. Realizing that she desired to learn more about leadership through servanthood she crossed the country to attend the second-year Bible School course at Capernwray Harbour.

The French people of Québec along with the desire to proclaim Christ to young people brought her back to Capernwray Québec, where she and her husband, Matthew, served for nearly fifteen years. Currently, they, along with their five children serve the local community in Orangeville ON.

Jessica loves to laugh, and with her warm, calm presence, she invites women to know and experience Jesus Christ, the One in whom she wholeheartedly puts her trust and faith.

Conference Topic

Solid Rock Faith

The assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen (Heb 11:1).

Join us this spring as we consider the great cloud of witnesses that Hebrews 11 records for us and explore the reality that enabled such remarkable faith journeys. Looking to Jesus, our faith will be strengthened and our desire intensified for that heavenly country designed and built for us by God Himself.

Expect practical examples of faith lived out and reflection on one’s own journey through this legacy of faith.
