When we arrived in Brandon in 2007, my family immediately found a spiritual home at Knox.
We moved to Manitoba from quite a distance, I was between jobs, and my spouse was starting a new position in Brandon. We were looking for a diverse and inclusive community that would nurture our children, engage our hearts and minds, and challenge us to do justice, offer compassion, and walk humbly with all of our relations. Knox was the place to be!
My family hung around Knox that first year until I received an appointment to ministry in two rural congregations the following summer. In 2012 I was called to serve as the minister here and returned, with my family, to this vibrant community.
If you’re looking for a place to call home, we hope you’ll come and check us out.
Knox is a house of prayer for all people, an expression of the Christian tradition and the United Church of Canada. We have a rich history in this community and would love to have you join us.
There are many places to connect and serve with us, and there’s no one way to be a participant.
Many folks join us on Sundays at 10:30 am for worship. You’ll see young and old, newcomers and long-timers, folks in jeans, and folks in dress clothes. During worship there is an opportunity for children and youth to gather in their Spirit Kids Club small groups. We have an active choir and music ensemble (Knoyse). For more information check out the worship tab.
Some community members only attend our sharing circles. Other friends come primarily on brunch Sundays and a few work in the kitchen.
We have participants that work with our Green Team and wouldn’t describe themselves as “Christian,” but are spiritual and concerned about our relationship with the earth.
You get the idea. There are lots of opportunities and you’ll learn more about us by exploring our website. New initiatives and events are frequently found on our Facebook page.
If you have questions, please feel free to connect with me by phone or email. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org 204-727-6975.
