The nativity scene is in place outside of the church. The Christmas tree is up with lights and decorations. The Advent wreath is ready to be lit. Here at Knox Waterloo we celebrate Advent and Christmas with wonder filled traditions.

We look forward to the children’s service on December 8th and the Choir’s special presentation on the 15th. The traditional Lessons and Carols with university students reading and singing carols with Full House Brass is on December 22nd.

Our LONGEST NIGHT SERVICE is on Saturday, December 21st at 8:00 p.m. As always this is a reflective, quiet, candle lit service for anyone who is finding this Christmas difficult, sad or who just need a quiet place of calm in the busyness of the Season. Our choir will provide some comforting music for us all. We are live on Radio 98.5 FM and live streaming at

Christmas is a time of generosity. Please consider making a Christmas Offering to your church. Our congregation has stepped out in faith. As we enter a new and exciting ministry, we need your financial support to start 2020 well.

Please make sure that your envelope number or full name is on the enclosed envelope. You may want to bring your offering to worship or give via the app ‘’ All donations to Knox for this year must be received by noon of December 31, 2019.

We are proud of our congregation. Many people will worship at Knox for the first time this Christmas season and hear the story of God’s amazing love. May our Christmas celebrations at church and at home be a blessing to all, as once again we invite our Lord to be born anew into our hearts.

Yours in love,
