The Beginning Experience (BE) Weekend is the foundation of the program. Participants spend the entire Weekend in a safe, caring, retreat-like atmosphere. The BE Weekend has proven to help individuals make a new beginning in life. The experience provides support and direction and offers participants an opportunity to re-evaluate their lives and to move on to the future with renewed hope. It is strongly recommended you participate in the “Coping With Life Alone” program prior to attending a Weekend. If you do attend the weekend without taking this program, we strongly recommend you take “Continued Beginnings” as a follow-up to the Weekend. ‘Coping’ programs and the retreat Weekends are only conducted at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Sarnia.
