The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 17
Tori Smit, Regional Minister for Faith Formation, Synod of Central, Northeastern Ontario and Bermuda, has created six interactive Lent Gardens.
We invite all ages to enjoy a journey through the Lent Garden each week, exploring stories, music, scripture readings, recipes, music, gardening activities, and more.
Following the first Garden on Ash Wednesday, a new "Lenten Garden" will be available to explore each Sunday of Lent until March 21.
Start by clicking on the bible on the park bench. With one click you will open up a collection of daily bible readings, children’s bible story readings, prayers, and questions to think about throughout each week. Once you’ve got these devotions at hand, go ahead and click around the rest of the garden to discover so much more.
Each of the itty bitty library boxes behind the park bench (there may be one or two to click on each week) unlock one or two video recordings of a wonderful bible story read by a church leader for everyone to enjoy. These stories come from the bible story books listed in the weekly devotions.
The hanging flower basket will take you on a weekly adventure of garden musings and gardening ideas with Kristine O’Brien, an avid gardener and thoughtful minister.
The guitar leaning against the tree sings out a brand new or much loved hymn or song that will connect you to our weekly bible stories and themes. You’ll want to sing along with all of these talented musicians.
Are you feeling like going for a walk? Click on the wooden door and walk into a world of labyrinth visits, reflections and finger labyrinth opportunities.
Is it time to be creative? The garden gnome reveals a simple craft idea that makes use of materials that you likely already have at home.
And when it’s time for something to eat, click on the picnic basket for a new recipe or two to try out at home.
St. Andrew’s Hall at the University of British Columbia—a college of the Presbyterian Church in Canada—has created a Lenten devotional guide. This free, downloadable guide has been created by a diverse group of contributors from within their community. Reading the reflections of this group of thoughtful and engaged Christian leaders is sure to be a wonderful addition to your Lenten season.
As of December 26, there will be no in person worship.
We are very thankful that we were able resume in person worship on Sunday September 13 up to December 20.
Session will consider reopening when the lockdown restrictions are lifted.
We came through the first wave with God's grace and blessing and we believe we will come through the second wave as well.
We will continue to live stream our service of worship on Sunday morning at 10:30 am on YouTube.
You can join up to 5 minutes before the regularly scheduled service time at 10:30 am

If you need help getting groceries or medications, please call the church office. We have many people at Knox willing to help out.
Our Sunday service is open to everyone. It is a blend of traditional and contemporary styles with dynamic music and relevant teaching of God’s Word.
A Communion service that is a celebration of the Lord’s Supper is held seven times a year usually the first Sunday of a month and special days.
We look forward to getting to know you and having you get to know more about us. Welcome!
For more information, please click on “I’m New.”
Join us after the Sunday morning service for a fellowship time with coffee, tea, juice and sometimes snacks. We gather in Metcalf Hall, beside the sanctuary, immediately following the church service. It is a wonderful time of fellowship for welcoming visitors, introducing ourselves to new people and celebrating special occasions.
Weekly coffee hours are currently being held online every Sunday at 11:30 via the Zoom meeting platform. It is very easy to join with the use of a smartphone, tablet, or computer, and all are welcome to participate.
