Our Global Mission Involvement
Knox is committed to the national and international mission work of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. To that end, in 2018 our goal was to give at least $33,000 to Presbyterians Sharing, the denomination’s budget. That budget supports such things as hospital and university chaplains in Canada, building new congregations, supporting Aboriginal ministry in Canada, translating the Bible into different languages abroad, and sending mission personnel as theological teachers or medical doctors to the developing world.

In addition, Knox supports the global ministry of Presbyterian World Service and Development [PWS&D]. PWS&D does two things: long-term development in the Third World, whether village wells in Ethiopia, agricultural development in India, or child and maternal health in Malawi. PWS&D also responds immediately to world emergencies, usually working cooperatively with other church agencies. You will often find on our website, a specific appeal to support PWS&D projects.
P.W.S.&D. and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank is responding to the crisis in Yemen by providing emergency food assistance, water, and sanitation programs for over 1,000 vulnerable families. This year, Knox’s Lenten Mission Project, is to provide assistance to the YEMEN APPEAL. You will find an envelope in you bulletin today. Donations may be received during Lent on any Sunday. Please make your cheque out to Knox Presbyterian Church, making sure that the word “YEMEN” appears on your cheque.
