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.
This summer, incredible numbers of people discovered our magnificent church as we opened our doors for downtown Oakville events. We’re opening our doors to our Oakville community once again on Saturday, Sept. 30th from 10 a.-m. to 4 p.m. as part of Doors Open Halton. People will be invited to visit our sanctuary and to find out more about what we do here at Knox.
ClearView Church in Oakville will be hosting another 13 week session of GriefShare this fall starting on Monday, September 6th to November 29th from 7-9 p.m. The event is held once per week every Monday evening. GriefShare is a grief support group with strong Christian roots. The weekly sessions focus on expert presentations in video format followed by discussions led by a facilitator. A workbook with weekly exercises, to be followed up with discussions at the next session, intermeshes superbly with the video presentations thereby encouraging the participant to move forward “from mourning to joy” (GriefShare’s motto).

On Saturday, August 19th Knox held a Doors Open and Holy Hot Dog event for the community. We once again handed out hot dogs and water and opened our building during the one day event. Thank you so much to all the volunteers who helped hand out hot dogs, greet people in our community, or helped minimize our environmental impact!
There are some new adventures planned for this fall. When our summer service schedule ends on Labour Day weekend (Sept. 3rd) instead of returning to two services we’ll be continuing with a single service. The fall schedule will begin on September 10th with a single service at 10 a.m. (That makes it easy to remember: the 10th at 10!) Beginning Sept. […]
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.
