The heart of Knox is its traditional Christian faith. We practice our faith in response to God’s saving action in Christ. We are a Holy Spirit-guided, active and believing congregation. Presbyterian liturgy and worship are central to congregational life. We, the members and adherents, hunger for the Word of God, expecting it to be revealed in preaching and discerned through study of the Bible. We welcome all who are open to God.
Music is an integral part of the spiritual experience of worship. We value our music programme with its emphasis on traditional repertoire and with a careful attention to the relationship of music to liturgy. We employ different styles of music when they are suitable to enhance the service of worship.
Our children participate in and contribute to the Sunday Service. Our church school is small, but it is staffed by dedicated teachers and is a highly valued part of the Knox family. Among the adults, there is a keen interest in Bible Studies, lectures and other opportunities to learn the Word of God and to grow spiritually.
Children are welcome in the service of worship and are an important part of the church family. They come forward for a children’s story, and then those who are three years of age and up leave for Sunday School. We also have a bright nursery for children up to 3 years of age. It is staffed every Sunday by volunteers throughout the service. You are welcome to accompany your child to Sunday School or the nursery for as long as needed, until they are comfortable being on their own.
Vespers is the traditional evening prayer service. As day fades to night, lamps are lit in our sanctuary as we join together in worship and prayer. Jazz Vespers at Knox are held at 7pm on the third Wednesday of each month, September through May. James McGowan is our pianist for a quiet evening of reflection, meditation, and communal prayer.
The church is open Wednesdays, 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for prayer, meditation, and to allow the community an opportunity to enjoy our sanctuary.
We share in the Lord’s Feast on select Sundays throughout the year. Communion Sundays for 2014 are as follows:
