We are starting to see more clients at Freedom Kitchen with specialized dietary needs such as gluten free, lactose free, and nut free diets. As these foods are often more expensive to purchase from the grocery store and are harder to find at food banks, we are trying to provide more selection in our food hampers for the clients who have specialized dietary needs. We are currently in need of these items:

  • gluten-free cereals, pasta, crackers, cookies, granola bars
  • nut free granola bars
  • lactose-free butter, cheese, margarine, milk
  • eggs
  • fresh fruit and vegetables

There will be a plug-in cooler in the narthex for the month of November for refrigerable items such as eggs, fruit, and vegetables and lactose-free dairy items, and a donation box for all shelf-stable donations.

Thank you for your support of this Knox Outreach program!

For more information, please contact Caroline Gallop or Beth Martin



On Sunday, Oct. 16, the Knox congregation voted to carry the motion to sign the letter of intent. The former Knox Futures Redevelopment Team now transitions to be the Knox Futures Development Team. The next update from this team is expected within 3 - 6 months.


There is a sign-up sheet posted in the Narthex for live-streaming help on Sunday mornings from now until the end of December.

If you haven't been trained and are interested in learning how to do any of these things, please contact the Church Office.

On February 24 the armed conflict between the Russian Federation and Ukraine erupted, costing precious lives and creating a humanitarian crisis as people flee from the conflict. The United Nations estimates that hundreds of thousands of people, displaced from their homes, are seeking refuge in neighbouring countries. Many have lost friends and loved ones, struggle to meet their basic needs, and face an uncertain future.
United Church Mission & Service partners are responding to the rapidly unfolding crisis.

You can help. Right now, people urgently need shelter, clean water, food, and medical attention.

Please show your support by making a gift today. Go to Conflict in Ukraine | The United Church of Canada ( to find out more.


We are looking for volunteers to help with the live-streaming and sound system for Sunday Worship Services! We are hoping to establish a rotating schedule so that you would only need to "work" one worship service every six weeks(ish).
Training will be provided! 

It is actually far easier than you might think! If you are interested please contact the office.


Outreach is collecting empty pharmacy plastic pill bottles (Please remove labels). These are being collected by the 1st Sackville Cub Scouts to send with medical supplies to low income countries where they will be used many times. A tote basket will be in the narthex for donations (next to Beacon House box).

Thanks to all who can support!

Prayer Shawls Needed
The Pastoral Care Team gives prayer shawls to bring warmth, comfort, love, and hope to those who are ill, grieving. or facing a difficult situation. If you love to knit or crochet, you can use your talent to help us with this special ministry. As you make your shawl simply pray that the person receiving it will find peace. Shawls will be received with thanks at the church during office hours.
For more information please contact the church office 902 865 9216.
