Once again, Knox Church will be participating in Doors Open Ottawa. As an annual showcase of historical, cultural, religious and heritage buildings, Doors Open Ottawa invites organizations to open their doors for free public open houses and tours. In the past, Doors Open has included more than 150 participating organizations.
This year's Doors Open Ottawa is on June 3rd and 4th, and Knox will be open to the public on Saturday June 3rd from 10am to 4pm and Sunday, June 4th from 12:30pm to 4pm. For more information about Doors Open Ottawa, check HERE
Prior to the pandemic and construction on Elgin, Knox would welcome as many as 450 into our sanctuary on the weekend of Doors Open. This year, Doors Open is including the theme of "FOOD" and Knox will include a free cafe in Geneva Hall, including beverages and baked goods. Plus, there will be information available about our Out of the Cold program, including brief tours of Iona Hall and Kitchen where this central ministry to the mission of Knox Church takes place.
We are still looking for a few more greeters and guides to volunteer on either day. Greeters welcome people in the Church Narthex and offer information pamphlets about the church. Guides give brief descriptions about various parts of the church and respond to questions from our guests.
Anyone able and willing to assist on either June 3rd or 4th, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
A virtual tour of Knox is also available below:
