Women’s Connection 2023

August 11–13, 2023AdultSummer
A Montreat Conference Center event

Women’s Connection 2023 will be a time for women to connect with old and new friends, a time to care for yourself; a time for space and Sabbath. As in years past, we will do this together through powerful and authentic worship led by women, space for honest and faithful conversation, and allowing time for discernment and renewing rest. Our hope is you will experience spiritual nourishment, inspiration, and discernment.

Workshop registration will open on May 1st at 9 am EST. If you have already registered for the conference, you will receive an email with a link to sign up.

A Word About COVID-19 and Your Visit to Montreat

Masking while staying in our facilities or attending one of our conferences is welcome but not required. We ask that you/members of your group please delay your visit to another time if you are sick, have symptoms, or have recently been exposed to COVID-19. Testing prior to your arrival, as well as packing tests for your trip to Montreat, are both strongly encouraged. If you or a member of your group develop symptoms while on-site, we ask that you test promptly and take necessary precautions, including masking, to keep you and guests safe and well.
