WELCOME to Knox Presbyterian Church, Midland. If you are new to Knox or just checking us out before you visit, here are a few things that you may find helpful.
TELL ME ABOUT SUNDAY WORSHIP
Our 10:30 am worship service is contemporary and casual as well as family friendly. The preaching is biblical and applies to life in the 21st century. Check out more information here: http://www.knoxmidland.ca/what-we-do/our-worship/
WHAT IS THE PASTOR LIKE?
Rev. Alton is friendly and approachable. He uses humour in his sermons and wears snappy sweater vests in the winter and golf shirts in the summer. Pastor Alton has been the minister of Knox Presbyterian Church, Midland, since September 2010. He hails from Stouffville, Ontario and graduated with degrees from Tyndale University College, Tyndale Seminary, and Knox College, University of Toronto. Over the years he has pastored in Stouffville, Oak Ridges, Beeton, and Toronto, Ontario. He is happy to have made the Midland area his home for the last 8 years. Alton lives in beautiful Victoria Harbour with his wife Nikki, and his two young sons – Samuel and Paxton. Rev. Alton is deeply committed to preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ in a biblical and culturally relevant way.

Absolutely not! Membership is a personal decision that may come later for you, but for right now just come and enjoy without worry.
WHAT IF I SING LIKE NAILS ON A CHALKBOARD?
So do I. Now I have company.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Clothes. Shorts or a tux, we don’t care.
ARE YOU INVOLVED IN THE COMMUNITY?
You betcha! Knox runs a the Gift of Grace Soup Kitchen, participates in community events: March Mudness hospital fundraiser, Buttertart Festival, Canada Day celebrations, Drumhead and Decoration memorial service, and until recently, hosted the Guest House shelter, to name a few. We minister to youth, families and seniors. We believe in living out our faith through word AND deed.
IS KNOX A RIGHT FIT FOR ME AND MY FAMILY?
You won’t know until you give it a try! Why not join us this Sunday, have a coffee, meet some friendly folks, and hear probably the best sermon you will ever hear?*
WHAT IF I WANT TO SPEAK TO THE PASTOR?
Easy! Just drop Rev. Alton an email at revalton @ knoxmidland .ca or call Knox Monday to Wednesday 9am to 3pm. Please not that office hours are suspended until September 7th.
