Who We Are Wellington Square
We are excited and full of hope for the future of our faith community. We’ve come through a lot together these past few years, and have demonstrated incredible resilience and experienced the joy of coming together to define who we want to be. We’ve learned together and shared hope for a bright future, and we are ready! Ready to learn and grow together. Ready to embrace new and exciting ways to connect with our loving God and each other. Ready to listen – to where and who God is calling us to be.
We are blessed to be worshipping on land that has been regarded as sacred by Indigenous peoples for thousands of years. Burlington as we know it today is rich in history and modern traditions of many First Nations and the Métis. From the Anishinaabeg to the Haudenosaunee, and the Métis – our lands spanning from Lake Ontario to the Niagara Escarpment are steeped in Indigenous history.
The territory is mutually covered by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy, the Ojibway and other allied Nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.
We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is part of the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit.
