Worship: 10:30 Sunday Morning Full Sunday School and Nursery Provided.
Knox, what's it all about?
We gather for worship at 10:30 each Sunday and provide a full family oriented service including a nursery for infants. We are a community church that embraces multi-generational worship engaging people in a multi-media experience of learning based on biblical teaching, witness, and involvement. We describe our "worship style" as blended meaning we provide elements for all ages, learning styles, and abilities. Worship is followed by a time of fellowship, refreshment and sharing. Faith development and spiritual foundations are formed through the Small Group Ministry established at Knox. In these groups relationships are further developed and the biblical model of discipleship is practiced.
Welcome-Our Family have Arrived
By the Grace of God...
We are delighted to share that our prayers of the past six months have been answered with the arrival of our new family! The joint efforts of Grace and Knox have been rewarded as our settlement plan has now become real people living amongst us. A special thank you to the team that has worked so diligently to organize this possibility. The current situation is a testament to Christian compassion and cooperation between two communities of faith. Below is a picture of the welcoming committee who greeted our new arrivals at Pearson International Airport January, 25, 2017.
We invite you to join with us in prayer as we assist this lovely family in adjusting and integrating into life in their adopted country of Canada. May the Lord continue to bless us in this endeavour.
Milton's Walk of Fame
Among the new inductees in 2017 are two from Knox Milton
February 19, 2017 marks the date when two people whose formative years were spent growing up at Knox Presbyterian Church will be inducted into the Walk of Fame here in Milton. Contemporaries: Kirk Brush and Karen Horst (nee Trimble) went on to have impactful careers in their fields that are being honoured in this special recognition.
Kirk Brush (1953 – 1995), World Champion Highland Dancer
Kirk Brush, who was born and raised in rural Milton, received his primary and secondary education locally and completed his post-secondary education at the University of Guelph.
Mr. Brush was the first foreign male highland dancer of any age to win numerous championships in Scotland, most notably at the Braemar Games, Cowal Games, Edinburgh Games and the Bute Highland Games between 1964 and 1970, participating in world youth championships between the ages of 8 and 17.
Often competing against much older Scottish competitors and others from other countries, Mr. Brush won numerous national and international championships over his career.
Kirk Brush died tragically in a motor vehicle accident in 1995.
Karen Horst (1954 - ), National Religious Leader
Karen Horst, was born, raised and received her primary and secondary education in Milton. She is the former Moderator of the 141st General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Canada.
Over her career as an ordained Presbyterian Minister, she has served on numerous national committees. She was convener of the Presbyterian World Service & Development committee for six years. She has led monitoring and exposure trips to visit partner organizations around the world. Karen has served the Life and Mission Agency committee, the International Affairs committee, and the Committee on Education and Reception within the P.C.C.
Karen Horst was on design teams for Triennium, a youth event of the Presbyterian Church (USA), and has written curricula, study guides and courses for many groups and events in the Presbyterian Church in Canada and for ecumenical use. She began her ministry career as a diaconal minister and regional consultant.
Let's do it Again!
Knox is gathering its 2017 team as KNOX WALKS...
Once again we have the opportunity to participate in CNOY the Coldest Night of the Year as walkers of all ages sizes and backgrounds join in the fundraising drive to assist Milton Transitional Housing in supporting our neighbour in need. If you want to join the parade of walkers our team captain is Cheryl Hayles, if you want to be a passive supporter through sponsorship you can sign up for one of our team members or support the whole team: Knox Rocks. Whatever your method, realize you are offering the same help that Jesus commended when he said, "when I was thirsty you gave me a drink... when I was hungry you fed me..."
Knox is a family oriented congregation that serves a multi-generation, multi-ethnic gathering of people who appreciate sound biblical teaching, strong commitment to faith development and the expression of faith through service. We engage in our ministry through worship, commitment to teaching our children - youth, small group experience for adults, fellowship together and mission as service locally or afield.
