Wed@Knox, Mar 20th – Stephen Todd and Failte: Celebrating with Music – Failte originated from a casual collection of musicians in the Autumn of 1991 in Waterloo. Failte (pronounced “fall-cha”) means welcome in Irish. Currently the group consists of original member Stephen Todd (vocals, bodhran, and tin whistle) as well as Jessica Weiler (fiddle, vocals) and Brian Crozier (guitar, vocals). The band plays traditional Celtic music with a Canadian attitude, including slow airs, ballads, jigs and reels from Ireland, Scotland and Canada. We may even enjoy a few sing alongs!

Details and costs are posted on the Knox bulletin board.

The Presbytery of Waterloo-Wellington is looking for a Treasurer. If you are interested, the detailed job description is on the Knox Bulletin Board. Deadline for applications is April 30th.
Easy Worship Volunteers – Each week in worship we have some amazing people who help, from greeters to ushers, to choir and praise band, from sound people, to live streaming and visuals on the screen. It takes quite a crew of Knox folk to make worship happen. We are looking for a few new people to be trained in Easy Worship software – that’s the person who gets the images and words on the screen to aid us in worship. The ministers choose the images and get the words for you, but we do need someone in the booth each Sunday to get the images onto the screen. It doesn’t take long to be trained and Andrew Church is happy to find a time when you are available. If you are at all interested in finding out more, please speak to Ruth Song, Rev. Linda Ashfield and/or Andrew Church. We need about 4 people who are interested so that each person is on about every 6 weeks or so. Please consider this ministry. Many thanks!
