New Cafe Co-Operative Opening on Yonge St!

Glebe Road United Church is pleased to be a partner in a new youth cafe opening at 2025 Yonge St, the old Sweet Shop location.

The cafe will be open to all ages but will be focussed on providing a safe place for young people to hang out and learn new skills. Programming in the arts, music, creative writing and physical movement will be offered.

The cafe will be operated by Transform Community Group Inc, a not for profit that has been operating free basketball and arts and crafts at Glebe Road United Church on Saturday’s for over a year.

The cafe was made possible by a generous grant from Presbyteries of Toronto Conference Corporation. Watch this space for more news about this exciting initiative. We hope to open doors to the public by March 1, 2019.

Play Beyond! Free basketball at Glebe has been operating successfully again this year at Glebe. The program starts at 230 pm every Saturday. The format is unique - the program opens with warm ups where parents are encouraged to participate. All ages of children are welcome but the focus is on ages four to nine years old children. Coach Lamar Robinson leads the lesson component - he’s coached all levels of basketball including with the kids skills development program of the Toronto Raptors. He’s got a great way to get the most out of children. The program is operated in partnership with the local not for profit Transform Community Group Inc. We hope you can make it out to one of the Saturday programs! For more details contact Tim Gilbert,
