Time Out is a week-long marriage retreat designed to help you step away from the pressures and distractions of daily life and find restoration and healing within your marriage.
WHAT IS TIME OUT?
For some, “Time out” is a term affectionately referred to by parents who discipline their children to stop, be still, consider your direction and make corrections. But for sports fans, a “Time Out” is called when an important game is at a critical point. The Time Out can be what makes the difference in ushering the team to victory. Which ever perspective suits you, a “Time Out” can make a real difference. During “Time Out” at Ellel, married couples will receive biblically based teaching on what makes marriage great. Each morning will involve opening God’s Word to see and apply His wisdom on marriage. Afternoons provide time to reconnect, play, rest and be refreshed. Each couple will have the option of scheduling ministry time with our team. Evening sessions are at your leisure.
WHERE IS TIME OUT?
Time Out Marriage Retreats are available at our Ellel Canada Ontario center on beautiful Wolfe Lake, 10 minutes outside the quaint village of Westport.
Time Out offers the opportunity to get away from your everyday world, to enjoy the beautiful grounds and surroundings of our centre, and reconnect with God as a couple. We have an amazing team that wants to make your stay with us a deeply blessed one.
"We examined and dealt with all the hurts and landmines in our marriage. We took the good experiences of our marriage and made them a deeper bedrock. We reconnected emotionally to create an intimacy we had always craved for but had lost many years ago. We fell in love and discovered a joy we had not known before. We learnt how to maintain our intimacy in the future and to deal with issues before they become embedded in our relationship. We have the marriage we always dreamed of and want to share that with others who can see the change in us."

"We both experienced God's healing in specific ways and feel like He broke down some walls between the two of us. God brought healing and hope to places in our marriage that I never thought possible."
