COVID Health & Safety Update In response to the rising number of cases of COVID 19 and the transmissibility of the Omicron variant, the Knox COVID Health & Safety Team has decided that, effective December 26, the Knox community will cease in-person worship. Worship will take place exclusively via live-streaming and radio at 10 am Sunday mornings. Tune in to CKWR-FM 98.5, stream on-line at knoxwaterloo.ca, or enjoy services posted to our knoxwaterloo YouTube channel.
These continue to be challenging days; feelings of frustration and discouragement may be close to the surface. Please remember to pause and remember the gift of Christ. God was born into a suffering world and continues to be born among us as Emmanuel. Hope lives among us still.
Rev. Hugh Donnelly & Rev. Courtney Crawford

Food for the Residents of A Better Tent City
We continue to join other churches in KW to provide food for the 50 residents of A Better Tent City. A Better Tent City is a no-barrier alternative to shelters. Every other week Knox Waterloo will be taking responsibility for providing breakfast for the 50 residents of A Better Tent City. We are so grateful for all those who have offered to help with this ministry! We are asking you to sign up to bake two dozen (24) portions of healthy baked goods: muffins, scones or protein bars/balls. We need 3 portions each time. Details are provided at the links below. Baked goods need to be dropped off to Femmy Birks on the Thursday or Friday of the week you register for. If you have any questions please contact Femmy.
We do our best to ensure that TW@K goes out on Thursday.
