Knox Worship Service - UPDATE
The government of Nova Scotia and the Department of Health released further restrictions related to COVID 19 on Tuesday, Nov. 24. The Knox Council, in compliance with these restrictions, has decided to revert to live-stream or pre-taped services only. This means that effective immediately, there will be NO CONGREGATION in the Sanctuary during our 10:30 a.m. Sunday Service.
Due to the recent increase in cases in our local area, Knox Council approved that this change AFFECTS ALL WORSHIP SERVICES BETWEEN SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2020 THROUGH UNTIL SUNDAY, JANUARY 3, 2021.
This INCLUDES our planned services for our Children's Service (Dec. 20), the Longest Night of the Year (Dec. 21), and our Christmas Eve Services.
We realize that this is a very different way to worship during one of the most important times of our Christian calendar. However, the safety of our congregation, Ministerial Team and our volunteers remains paramount. Please watch here for updates on our services, check our Facebook page for event information and stay safe.
 
Yours in Christ - Knox Council

Freedom Kitchen News –

 - Now located in the Knox Parking lot
            - Cann Hall entrance, (Disco Deli side)
5pm – 7pm


Due to the recent provincial updates for Covid-19 and the community spread we are going to put a pause on the clothing donations coming in. At the current time we’ve filled our storage space, and will not be hauling clothing out to the truck till we know more or the community spread stops. 
At the same time if someone is desperately in need of some warm clothing, tent, sleeping bag please ask one of the volunteers and we will gather what you need in the size requested. Once a clothing item is tried on we have to steam clean it and hang it up for another week. 
Thanks to everyone for understanding and we look forward to a time when we can run smoothly again! 

Interested in a volunteer position next season? You can now sign up on our website!

Keeping in Touch with one another
During this time of crisis, keeping in touch with one another, our faith family, our friends, our families, is more important then ever. Please reach out to those that you think of; someone who makes you smile, someone who you think might be isolated and you might be able to make smile, anyone who might be lonely. If you are wanting a phone call, need assistance of any kind, reach out to another member of Knox or feel free to leave a message on the Church phone line (902) 865-9216.

Prayers are requested for a variety of reasons; to seek comfort, to make a request, ask for guidance, to heal and restore, express sorrow, celebrate joy, give thanks to name a few.
