Thank you soooo much to all the volunteers who came out on Wednesdays throughout the summer to feed kids and their families after the day camp program at Kerr Street Mission. You showed great generosity of spirit.
A new breastfeeding support group is starting up this summer, and they’ll be meeting on the first Thursday of every month right here at Knox. New and experienced moms are all welcome! The first meeting will be Thursday, June 7th from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. To learn more about La Leche League or the drop-ins here at the church, visit the local group’s Facebook page.
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.
Our Annual General Meeting is coming up on Sunday, March 5th (along with our international potluck lunch). You can pick up a print copy of the annual report after church, or save some trees and download a pdf copy now. Don’t forget to make notes and flag anything you have questions about so you can ask at the meeting.
