SAVE THE DATE: September 17th Davisville Neighbour-to-Neighbour Back-to-School Clothing Swap (co-hosted by works-in-progress collective)
With kids heading back to school, you may find that their clothes no longer fit. We are all in the same situation, so we are organizing a neighbourhood (Covid safe) clothing swap. Here’s how it works: kids in your household outgrown their clothes? Keep the kids, pass on those clothes to others in your neighbourhood! Need some clothes for quick-growing kids? We’ll have lots to choose from – come fill your bags and keep clothes with life left in them in circulation as long as we can! NEW THIS FALL-ADULT (or older kid) SIZES, which will all be hohosted at Glebe Road United Church (20 Glebe Road East) AND a repair upcycle advice station, where you can find out how to keep the clothes you love on your back or become something new.
The swap will be held in yards in the Davisville/Mt. Pleasant area all within walking distance of Glebe Road United and June Rowlands park (one size/yard). Volunteers needed to make this a success! You don’t need a yard to host. Please reach out ASAP if you have questions or want to take part as a donor, swapper, or host. Come participate in the local, circular economy (and have some fun)
Location: Neighbourhood yards across the Davisville area + Glebe Road United Church
Date: Saturday September 17, 2021
(Raindate: Sunday September 18, 2021)
Cost: FREE (fill a bag for $5 or pay what you can)
Items: gently used clothing and shoes all sizes

Works-in-Progress is an eco-artist collective with roots in Toronto and Hamilton. We make art out of garbage, co-host swaps, and hold workshops. We use recycled materials in art making because reclaiming and up-cycling inspires creativity. After facilitating clothing swaps in Toronto for a couple of years, we hosted a successful pandemic safe swap last fall and want to build on that success with another local swap in Davisville September 17th in partnership with a swap in the Moss Park neighbourhood on September 24 as well.
When: Saturday October 1, 2022 from 11 AM – 1 PM
Where: On the lawn at Glebe Road United Church
Bring your pets and your stuffies for a special blessing of the animals on the lawn at Glebe Road United Church. We will be having live music, contests with prizes, and a book sale to support the Glebe Road United Refugee fund.
If you have books to add to the book sale, please bring them by the church office in the weeks prior to the event!
In the event of rain, the event will move to the Larkman Room of the church. The parking lot door is closest to the Larkman room, and is accessible to all.

Building God’s Beloved Community
If you are new or newish to the Christian faith, interested in learning more about membership in The United Church of Canada or if you want to re-discover the faith you grew up with, think about joining our book study beginning this Fall. We will be reading “Building God’s Beloved Community: Discipleship in The United Church of Canada.” This book was written primarily with those new to the church in mind (the language is very accessible) yet is still relevant for wherever you are in your faith journey. The book features contributions from a wide theological and cultural spectrum within The United Church of Canada.
We will be reading this book of the course over 14 weeks (one short chapter per week). You can come every week or choose which week and topics are of interest to you (the chapters on spiritual practices and Indigenous spiritual heritages may be of particular interest).
Read the introduction to the book here.
