LGBT2Q+ Affirming

We know that churches and inclusion haven’t always gone hand-in-hand, but our community is built on taking risks to change that. St. Andrew’s-Wesley is inclusive, and not in a passive way. We are intentional and explicit in our commitment to the LGBT2Q+ community. Our staff work to understand the experience you’re moving through by listening with open hearts and minds. We show up, pay attention, and take action.

Rainbow Refugee Mentorship Program

Are you a local LGBT2Q+ person with five or more years working in your profession? Rainbow Refugee is looking for mentors to support LGBT2Q+ refugees who are new to Canada looking to enter the workforce. By committing two to four hours a month, you can help refugees navigate a new employment system, meet people in their industry, and access the resources available to them.
