ABCD Section – Nurturing Neighbourhoods Brampton Doors Open Brampton

ABCD Section – Nurturing Neighbourhoods Brampton

The ABCD Section is a significant portion of the north Bramalea area that functions as a small city. The community contains a civic centre, a major transportation hub, a regional shopping centre and a multi-purpose park. The ABCD Section in particular contains a significant portion of Brampton’s industrial land space, which plays a vital role towards the well-being, culture and economic prosperity of the city. While each section can be defined as its own neighbourhood, the proximity of their geographies means that these sections are supported by similar amenities, such as schools, parks and trails. The Nurturing Neighbourhoods Program aims to connect residents with resources, improve civic engagement and empower residents to play an active role in enhancing their neighbourhood. We want to have meaningful conversations in our neighbourhoods. In 2020, and as part of Digital Doors Open, residents can enjoy a virtual neighbourhood walking experience and share what they love about their neighbourhood and what can be changed using the online survey and mapping tools. Though the city is there to support, the strongest neighbourhoods are made by the people who actually live there.

Grace United Church Doors Open Brampton

Grace United Church

The beginning of this congregation goes back to 1822. The historical church, built as a Wesleyan Methodist Church in 1867 and extensively renovated in 1887, is the oldest church in Brampton. The exterior brickwork and bell tower of this Gothic revival building have been restored. The sanctuary has wonderful woodwork, a gallery with an intricate wrought-iron railing, and over 40 stained-glass windows. The beautiful Casavant pipe organ was installed in 1924, a gift from the Duggan family in memory of those who served in the First World War. In 1982, people from Grace United formed a non-profit group to build Grace Court, a seniors’ apartment building in downtown Brampton in recognition of the need for affordable seniors’ housing in the area. More recently, in 2009, the parts of the building outside of the sanctuary became a community hub known as Grace Place, where over 40 community groups deliver their programs and services to the people of Brampton. Grace Church today has become known as the church with a heart in the heart of the city. As part of Digital Doors Open, visit the Doors Open Brampton YouTube channel and learn about this extraordinary place, take a virtual sanctuary tour, hear all about the congregation’s 198-year history, and take a look at how the Casavant pipe organ works and what it sounds like.

Residents and students are the heartbeat of this community, and their imprint is seen throughout Sheridan. Sheridan also boasts a unique district energy facility, and has initiated an exciting process to develop a bold, innovative and comprehensive Campus Master Plan that will provide a road map to transform Brampton’s built environment over the next 30 years. The Nurturing Neighbourhoods Program aims to connect residents with resources, improve civic engagement and empower residents to play an active role in enhancing their neighbourhood. We want to have meaningful conversations in our neighbourhoods. In 2020, and as part of Digital Doors Open, residents can enjoy a virtual neighbourhood walking experience and share what they love about their neighbourhood and what can be changed using the online survey and mapping tools. Though the city is there to support, the strongest neighbourhoods are made by the people who actually live there.
