SABL Retreat Centre
The community of St. Andrew by-the-Lake (SABL) has undertaken the development of a Christian Eco Retreat Centre. SABL offers a ministry of spiritual resilience and hope in the midst of impending climate change. We believe that God is calling Christians to a renewed commitment of a more faithful and biblical stewardship of creation.
The community of St. Andrew invites you to come and spend an eco-retreat day with us. Typically each day would include:
1. An opportunity to enjoy the Island ecology with a guided walk
2. A time of biblical study, teaching, reflection and prayer
3. A local and/or sustainable meal
Congregations and groups can design their own day with the clergy of SABL (Michael Marshall or Stephen Drakeford) or they can register for the set retreats offered.

WINTER BIRDS, ARCTIC ICE & CREATION CENTRE
Did you realize the Toronto Island harbors Arctic waterfowl over the winter? Bring your binoculars and you’ll see up to a dozen species of ducks and shorebirds. A warm local meal and wine, an update on the latest on Arctic melt as well as prayer and biblical reflection will round out the day. Led by Stephen Drakeford.
CHILDREN'S ECO RETREAT
Creative play, bible stories, walks, projects and prayer will enrich children’s spiritual lives and add to their school’s environmental curriculum. Led by Stephen Drakeford and congregation.
How does the big bang converge with our spirituality and traditions? This indoor guided meditative journey surprisingly illuminates both science and spirituality. Led by Stephen Drakeford and Grant Janke.
