The youth ministry at Knox serves 13-19 year-olds, and consists of 4 components: Faith, Fellowship, Service, and Support.
Faith: All the activities we do are rooted in our faith and in service of God and others. Youth are often looking for meaning, and asking big life questions. We at Knox Youth offer a weekly Youth Night, on Mondays from 6:30- 8:00pm in the Parlour (excluding holidays). This is a time where youth can explore their faith, ask questions, and dig into scripture to learn more about who God is and how He is relevant to their lives. We also take some time to pray for each other, worship, and play games. All are welcome, and snacks are provided!
Fellowship: We believe that an integral part of our faith community is fellowship. Knox Youth offers a monthly event, where youth can come together for some fun and fellowship. Whether it be tobogganing, a movie night, or a trip to Wonderland, fun is sure to be had by all! Check the Knox calendar on our website for upcoming events!
Service: Serving others with our gifts and talents is one way we can share our faith in practical ways, and serve our community. Knox Youth serves in a variety of ways through outreach or service projects, on a monthly basis. We believe that having a servant heart, is something that is put into practice through ongoing acts of service. Check our website for upcoming service projects.
Support: Adolescence can be a difficult time. We know that youth benefit from having trusting, caring adults in their lives to help them navigate life’s challenges. We offer individual support to youth through counseling, spiritual care, and mentorship.

Christmas Pageant Goes Virtual
In place of our traditional Christmas pageant, families in Church School and in LOGOS are each taking a part to present the Christmas Story.
Starting on December 20, check "What's Happening" and link to the Knox You Tube channel to see this presentation.
At Knox, our Church School strives to bring the message of God's love and Christ's teachings to children and youth. We want children to discover, develop and rely on their relationship with God.
We offer classes for all children from Junior Kindergarten up to Grade 8. Children and leaders meet in the Sanctuary at Children's Time during Sunday morning worship. Church School at Knox endeavours to encourage all age groups on their faith journey.
PRESCHOOLERS are full of wonder and open to discovery. They also have a need for security. At Knox they can feel secure in the depth of God's love.
GRADE SCHOOL CHILDREN are beginning their self discovery. At Knox, we help them to work out their connections to others, to their world, and most importantly to God.
We are all Children of God. We are all part of the Knox Family. We all have gifts to share with each other... children with old members of our church family and in turn, older members with our children and youth.
All ages are welcome at Knox in worship, at Communion, celebrating Baptisms and in class rooms.
For more information about our Church School Programs please contact Karen Bellamy, Church School Coordinator.
