Support & Recovery

Celebrate Recovery

The purpose of Lakeside Church’s Celebrate Recovery ministry is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the “8 Recovery Principles.” We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviours. Celebrate Recovery at Lakeside meets every Monday night at 7:00 p.m. A ‘Newcomers 101’ group is offered each week to provide an overview of the program and to help guide first time attendees into the appropriate support group that best reflects the current life struggle. For more information please contact Brian Bulger at 519-836-8141 ext 225 or visit



DivorceCare is a 13-session course designed to help you face the challenges of separation and divorce and move toward rebuilding your life. Each DivorceCare session has two distinct elements: During the first 30-40 minutes of the meeting, each DivorceCare group watches a video seminar followed by a support group with focus. After viewing the video DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members. Please see the DivorceCare website for more information. Each topic stands on its own so new members are welcome every week.

Our mission is to provide a safe place to cope with life’s losses.

  • Grief is what we feel when we experience loss
  • Grief is the inward response to loss
  • Mourning is the outward expression of our grief

Griefwalk is a peer-based Support Ministry where those who have experienced losses themselves are ready to come alongside and “walk” with those who are grieving. We offer this support through:

  1. Bereavement Loss Support Groups.
  2. One-to-one peer support.
  3. Book Resources. We have a library of helpful books and pamphlets.
  4. Referral to a Grief Counselor.

It is important to find the best match for each grieving person; an interview is the starting place where together we can look at your personal grief journey and see what supports would be most helpful.

For more information, please contact Elizabeth Lengyel at or 519-836-8141 ext 237.
