What is Celebrate Recovery?

* Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centred, purpose-driven recovery program grounded in the teachings of the Beatitudes.
* The 12 steps and their biblical comparisons are presented as steps toward overcoming ‘hurts, habits, and hang-ups'.
* The fundamental difference between this program and traditional 12-step programs is that we (Celebrate Recovery) identify with our solution, Jesus Christ instead of the ever-spanning list of issues in our lives.

Our Purpose:

"Woodvale Pentecostal Church Celebrate Recovery ministry is a Christ-centred celebration of God's victory in our lives! By identifying with Jesus Christ, we are overcoming hurts, habits and hang-ups, and living forward-looking and joy-filled lives in relationship with God, ourselves, and others."
What happens every Monday night at Celebrate Recovery?

Worship is the foundation for bringing people together for Celebrate Recovery.

We begin with  our Large Group Worship and Teaching from  7-8 pm. Then at 8 pm, Small-Groups of men only and women only will meet to discuss the teaching and our own personal experiences in a safe and confidential environment until 9 pm.

Before and after the large and small group meetings, we have Fellowship time - Meet with others over a coffee/tea between 6:30-7:00 (before worship begins) and 9:00-9:30 (after small groups) each Monday evening.
