As disciples of Christ we are called to contribute our gifts and resources in our world.
Knox Church contributes to Presbyterians Sharing, the national church fund that supports the national office and the overall mission of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. Every congregation across Canada commits to give a suggested allocation from their Presbytery (Waterloo-Wellington) each year and these contributions are pooled at the national church offices and distributed to all of the ministries.
The ministries include mission staff at home and around the world, inner city, aboriginal peoples and refugees, and theological colleges.

Presbyterian World Service & Development is responsible for development, emergency and refugee needs around the world.
PWS&D works with partners such as local churches and organizations around the world to educate and help overcome poverty as well as to respond to emergency situations.
PWS&D raises funding from Presbyterian churches, individuals, government matching funds. Thanks to their partners at Canadian Foodgrains Bank and ACT Alliance, PWS&D is able to greatly expand their reach and coverage in response to emergency situations.
Individuals and congregations can get involved in many ways to help.
