Inclusion at Wellington Square

Inclusivity Statement

At Wellington Square United Church, we embrace the liberating love of Jesus Christ. We recognize that we are not perfect and have not always loved well. We have not been inclusive and have caused harm. Moving forward, we are committed to doing better: loving, growing, listening, learning, and taking action to be more inclusive.

While, at present, Wellington Square is not engaged in the process of becoming an affirming church, we commit to honouring the value of all people, spanning any ability, disability, economic status, race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexuality (2SLGBTQIA+), mental wellness, age, marital status, neurodiversity, or theological perspective.

We commit to living out our United Church Creed† , which says in part:
We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.

We commit to the purposeful cultivation of a church community that provides a safer and more inclusive space for everyone to encounter the love of Jesus Christ.
