Welcome, and thank you for visiting The Salvation Army East Toronto online. We would be delighted to welcome you at one of our services or weekly events. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available.
Salvation Army congregations have an important role in supporting Partners in Mission. This fundraising campaign provides the necessary money to carry out the ministry of The Salvation Army worldwide. These funds ensure that the Army continues to be a beacon of hope in countries devastated by poverty, illness and natural disasters – countries where much of the population lives on less than $2 a day.
When we look at our world, we need to see the faces behind the news reports and statistics. God actively cares about all of his creation, but he chooses to work through his people who have been charged to carry out his mission of hope, healing and transformation. We are God’s hands to comfort a hurting world.
Since time immemorial, Indigenous peoples and nations have lived on this land referred to as Turtle Island. This continues to be homeland for many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
We are hosted on the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit, Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, and Wendat peoples.
This land is covered by Treaty 13, the Williams Treaties and “The Dish with One Spoon Wampum” covenant which is a peace treaty between The League of Five Nations, The Confederation of the Anishinaabeg, and the Allied Nations. The Dish with One Spoon reminds us we only have one dish, one Earth which supplies all that we need. We should only take what we need, leave something for others, and keep the dish clean. It also demonstrates our collective responsibility to share equally and to care for the resources around the Great Lakes.
We are grateful for the opportunity to serve in the community, on this territory.
