We are pleased to share with you the latest information on the life, mission and ministry of Knox. Check out what's happening at your church. Information under the "News" tab.
Since 1855 Knox, Milton has provided a continuous witness to Jesus Christ in our community. This rich heritage has never been more important or evident to us than when we consider the vast change that's ongoing in our community. As many of you may remember in 2010 Knox was faced with a difficult decision when our historic sanctuary was declared unsafe for occupancy. At that time we wrestled with our future, our role in the shaping of the town's character, and our commitment to our beliefs. After considerable prayer, discussion, and planning the stalwart Presbyterian witness remains on Main Street with a renewed commitment to evangelism. That is the sharing of our faith in mission, ministry and service.
Some of the reasons behind staying in the core of town centered around the kind of ministry we began to feel called to provide. Knox believes her witness is providing a "bridge" between the historic context of our town and the emerging city-scape that we are experiencing. We sincerely believe we are equipped to assist in this transition, our building is a parable or metaphor for such a dramatic change. The front facade of our beautiful architecture was designed by an English architect and boldly faces Main Street declaring the sound witness that has been in place since 1890. However, we are blessed to have a secondary entrance to our facility which faces Mary Street (presently the rear of the church). This facade boldly faces the new Town Hall and offers the opportunity to welcome Miltonians with a message that is timeless, yet shaped to meet the communication needs of the present generation. In the middle of these two entrances is our "meeting place," here we find the opportunity for multi-generational faith events, multi-cultural encounters, and multi-faceted outreach. Being in the core of Milton makes our accessibility a key factor.
In describing this ministry we find the declaration in Hebrews 13:8 to be our clarion call, "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever."
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.
Friends of Knox,
Our people have been enquiring how we can assist those who have been forced to evacuate their homes due to the wildfires in Fort McMurray, Alberta. The horrible scenes of families fleeing the inferno have been shocking and only ameliorated by the amazing acts of kindness and benevolence we’ve witnessed as support is pouring out. To participate in the relief of this desperate situation we ask you to pray for those displaced and if possible to donate to one of the following:
1. The Presbyterian Church in Canada is involved; first on the ground in Fort McMurray through a congregation called Faith Presbyterian Church. You can read a little about the evacuation of the church’s people including their minister the Rev. Lisa Aide on our PCC website. There you will also find an update from our Moderator the Rev. Karen Hoerst along with an opportunity to donate to the relief effort through PWSD. The link to this website: www.presbyterian.ca
2. The Canadian Red Cross has been supporting the evacuees through their outstanding network of disaster relief workers. The Canadian government has pledged to match donations made to the Red Cross for this Wild Fire Relief Fund and you can access their website and on line donations through this link: www.redcross.ca
In the midst of all of this devastation, the one constant we as Christians must maintain is a prayer presence seeking God’s blessing and will in the midst of this disastrous event. I am completely amazed there have been no casualties to date and thank God for this miracle. Please pray for the first responders and those struggling against the fire to save life and property so people may return to Fort McMurray. Pray that the Lord will provide weather that cooperates with the human efforts to contain and finally extinguish the inferno surrounding these northern towns. Let us draw together in one accord to show the love of Christ to those in need.
I remain yours in Christ’s love and service,
