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.”
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.
Join us for church… over dinner! It’s that simple. It’s that profound. We gather face-to-face with our neighbours, around tables filled with good food which we work together to prepare and serve. Framing our time together is simple yet sacred worship of God as we celebrate holy communion. At the heart of our gathering is hearing and reflecting on scripture. Together we create space for worshipping and wondering, as we participate in radical hospitality.
It’s great to see some new members of the Oakville community featured in the local paper. A reporter from the Oakville Beaver interviewed the Musa family and a few members of the refugee sponsorship team for an article. Check it out.
