The Centre Wellington Refugee Network is a partnership of community groups each interested in sponsoring a refugee family.
The CWRN values:
- Working together to share our information, ideas and resources
- Building community between our organisations and for those we sponsor
- Educating our community about the needs around current refugee crisis
- Creating opportunities for everyone in Centre Wellington to get involved.
Our members include:
Faith Evangelical Lutheran
The Faith Evangelical Lutheran congregation of Fergus-Elora strives to be a welcoming community of God’s people gathered in worship and service, friendly and open to care, to teach, to welcome all seekers and to serve those in need.
We are a group of citizens from Centre Wellington (Ontario) that want to be part of the solution to the refugee crisis. Our team includes members of Elora United, Knox Presbyterian and other committed citizens from all corners of our community.
St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church
St. Andrew’s is currently in the process of applying to sponsor a Refugee family, and helping them start a new life in our area. This will be done in co-operation with the Presbyterian Church of Canada.
Under The Same Sky
Under the Same Sky is a grassroots organization started by a group of local Centre Wellington citizens who felt compelled to take action on the refugee crisis. In the wake of the turmoil in the Middle East, North Africa and Europe, we all felt similarly overwhelmed with the number and needs of so many who were displaced and how little we could accomplish on our own.
