Our Statement of Welcome and Inclusion
In response to God's call,
we, the congregation of Robertson-Wesley United Church
declare our commitment to opening our hearts and our church family
to all people in our community, regardless of sexual orientation, age,
gender, differing abilities, ethnicity, or economic circumstance.
We recognize that many people's lives continue to be devastated
by hatred, prejudice, and inequality;
therefore, as a compassionate and caring spiritual community
we will stand with those who are adversely affected
by injustice, alienation and oppression.
At Robertson-Wesley we endeavour to be a caring community: a place of belonging and acceptance, where each person regardless of sexual orientation, age, gender, differing abilities, ethnicity, or economic circumstance - knows they are respected and cared for.
We are also a place of learning and growing, where we are supported in our personal faith journeys and encouraged to think critically about how Christ takes form in the midst of the world.
And we reach out to our community locally and to the world globally, compassionately responding to the needs of the world around us.
The music of the organ, choirs, bells, orchestras and instrumentalists fills the air in joyful celebration of the faith we share and the beauty of life.
Then it all comes together every Sunday morning as we gather for worship, singing the songs of our hearts, praying the depth of our souls, hearing stories of faith and listening for the wisdom and inspiration we need for the living of our days.
