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.
On Nov. 9-12, 2017, Rev. Jacqui and six members of our congregation headed to Stewards by Design, a national conference designed to help congregations expand their ministry and nurture generous giving. Participants explored how stewardship is not just a financial matter, but is a spiritual matter concerned with all aspects of life and ministry. In partnership with the keynote speaker, Dr. Kennon Callahan, and a mentor personally assigned to each congregation, the team began to develop a plan designed for our unique congregation. Check out some photos from the event in this post!
Knox is seeking a leader for our Finance Team. We have three dedicated and talented individuals on the team already. We are now seeking a talented and engaged person with professional accounting and/or finance skills to be the Finance Team leader (sometimes called the Treasurer). Knox’s session and the Memorial Trust’s trustees envision that this new finance role would not only support Knox’s operations but would also provide finance leadership to the Memorial Trust. The previous finance leaders, Keith McKay and Gerhardt Samwell, have done an outstanding job but have now retired from the roles. If you are interested in learning more about this new role and how you could contribute, or could recommend someone who might be interested, please contact the Clerk of Session, Don Dinnan by email, by phone at 289-400-7553, or leave a note for Don in the church office.
Webcasting of the 9:30 a.m. Sunday worship service is being tested for the next few Sundays! So, if you are away from Knox and wish to participate in the webcast, please contact Gary Frazer. We would like to webcast the services into the nursery, parlour and Sunday school classes, so we would be grateful for the donation of 3 or 4 LED TVs.
Thank you to everyone who helped out at the Camp in Your Own Backyard (CYOB). This year’s camp was held at Trafalgar Presbyterian Church and was facilitated by counsellors from Camp Cairn. However, it would not have been possible without the help of the wonderful Knox volunteers. God bless each of you!!
