Check out the March/April issue of Faith Today magazine and read the cover story written by Knox Oakville’s own Amy MacLachlan. It’s a beautiful piece about food, community, faith, hurt and healing. It also features a sidebar about our own Dinner Church at Knox—one of the many ways we, in Rev. Jacqui’s words, “find real connection with friends and strangers-yet-to-become-friends. We leave Dinner Church nourished in body and in spirit, having tasted Heaven itself.”
The Chancel Guild would love to have you join us on Good Friday, March 30th for coffee, tea and warm hot cross buns before the Good Friday 10 a.m. worship service. We will be serving the delicious buns starting at 9:15 a.m., so come early to mingle and munch with us! This fellowship time is for prior to the worship service only, so be sure to come early, and then enjoy some of the organ recital in the sanctuary.
Our worship team, Rev. Jacqui, Brian Turnbull, John Kirstein, and Jayne Thomson are attending the Calvin Symposium on Worship in Grand Rapids, Michigan, this weekend. The conference brings together a wide audience of artists, musicians, pastors, scholars, students, worship leaders and planners, and other interested worshippers.
This support group will offer help and encouragement after the death of a spouse, child, family member or friend. The 13 sessions are based on a Christian outlook, but the group is open to everyone. You don’t have to attend every session, since each one can be appreciated on its own. You’re also welcome to attend any sessions you missed the next time we run the GriefShare program.
This program will run weekly from Jan. 15th to April 23rd, 2018, from 7:00 to 8:45 p.m. No sessions will be held on Family Day (Feb. 19th) or Easter Monday(April 2nd). The program is free, however the workbook costs $20 (for those who can afford it.)
You can register for GriefShare at Knox on our EventBrite page, or you can contact the Church Office.
At a congregational meeting on December 3rd, the congregation of Knox voted overwhelmingly in favour of moving forward on the New Roads facility upgrade. The meeting was an exciting and inspiring time (and let’s be honest, we don’t always get to say that about meetings.) A big thank you to the members of the New Roads team who continue to do amazing work on this project. You can learn more about New Roads on this newly created webpage.
It’s time to sign up to our annual travelling nativity set! Be a part of this amazing tradition, meet people from our church you’ve never met before, read stories of the travelling nativity set from years before…. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to connect with Christ and with your church this Advent season.
