A Community Hub of Services and Programs
Knox is a gathering place where people find welcome, safety, acceptance. It is a place for feasting and fasting, for learning and doing, for praying and partying, a space that belongs as much to the neighbourhood as it does to the church.
Programs operating out of the building include those which Knox is involved in the delivery/funding (they are listed under Knox Programs in menu above) and those which utilize space in our building. There is a list of them below, with information on how to contact them.
We also have occasional renters. For more information, see our Rentals page.
In June 2019, The Manitoba Islamic Association joined the Community Hub when they purchased the building just north of Knox at 406 Edmonton from the congregation.
MIA has long wanted to have a presence in downtown, where many newcomer Muslims live. They plan to convert the currently vacant second floor to house mental health services and poverty-relief programs as well as a space for up to 200 people to pray. The Knox Day Nursery will remain on the main floor and a child welfare agency will continue to occupy space.
It is a wonderful opportunity to develop community, with hopes for shared programming and other connections. (Read More)
