Knox United Church, Agincourt is a ‘culturally diverse, united in faith’ community which provides a place for you to explore and deepen your spiritual journey.
As a friendly and caring community with a mix of all ages, families, and individuals from a variety of religious and cultural backgrounds, we join together in community with our strengths and weaknesses, our health and our brokenness. We provide a safe environment to question, to heal, and to become part of a community.
No two of us are alike; some offer affection and care, others stimulate our minds, while another may strengthen our souls. Still together in community we create a beautiful tapestry of love. Whether you've been going to church all your life or never imagined yourself checking out a church, you are welcome here!
We invite you to join in!
