Things To Do

Wilderness Edge and the surrounding Pinawa area provide a variety of activities for you to enjoy.

Looking for time to decompress and relax? Enjoy the hot tub and sauna, fire pits, walks along the beach, or reading on the dock.


If you are looking to explore and be a little more active, there are a number of activities at or around Wilderness Edge Retreat Center that are available:

  • Pinawa’s Suspension Bridge

  • Fishing

  • Canoeing

  • Tennis

Theme - "God is Near - Praying the Psalms"

Some would say that the psalms are our guidebook to prayer. They give us a scriptural voice for human experience and expression. There is movement from lament and loneliness to joy and praise; alongside anger and resentment, we find hope and love. “How long?” the psalmist cries, and then concludes with, “but I will trust in the Lord” (Psalm 13).

We will spend time in the psalms throughout our retreat and use them as a guide for our discussion and prayers. The planning team will be inviting MBCM pastors to lead us through a psalm, focusing on both lament and praise. Our time together will be rich, and we hope you will deeply feel God’s presence as we hear from each other and come together as a community.

Registration - Full & Partial Retreat Options

We want to do everything possible to make this retreat accessible for all our MBCM Pastors. In order to keep costs down we have a great opportunity to head to Pinawa Wilderness Edge Retreat Centre. (Not quite as swanky as Hecla but almost half the price!!!)

  • Registration cost is $180/per person
  • If financially possible, paying the full price of $365/person, or more than the $180 would free up some funds for others
  • One night stay (including dinner on arrival day + next day meals) is $90.00/person
  • Day Trip (all day meals) is $45.00/person

Once again we want all of our pastors and spouses to have the opportunity to attend so if finances are tight (which we assume they are for most) please don’t hesitate to register and tell us how we can help.


Space is limited so register as soon as possible. Registration closes Monday, May 23rd.
