All welcome to join us at Knox for Worship this Sunday mornng, May 19th at 11 AM!   We welcome as Guest Minister, Ms. Huda Kandalaft Kanawati.  Huda has a Masters in Christian Education from The Near East School of Theology in Beirut and Masters of Divinity from Presbyterian College in Montreal.   From 2011 to 2018, Huda served as Christian Educator for one of Ottawa's other downtown Presbyterian congregations, St. Andrew's Church at the corner of Kent and Wellington Streets.  In the Spring of 2018, Huda was certified for Ordination by the Presbytery of Ottawa.   

Sunday's sermon by Ms. Kandalaft is "Does Prayer Change God's Mind?"   The readings for Sunday are as follows: 

Sunday Worship usually concludes around noon, after which many remain for Coffee Hour, an opportunity to enjoy refreshments and conversation for either a short time or the entire hour. 


  •  We have childcare for infants and very young children in a nursery downstairs.  Parents are welcome to bring young children into the sanctuary or to the Nursery, and may also stay with their children in the Nursery if they choose.  
  • Sunday School is available for children ages 3 and up.  Children are encouraged to join adults for the beginning of worship, up to and including the Children's Time, after which they are dismissed for Sunday School to Geneva Hall, where parents or guardians can receive them again following worship. 
  • 11 AM marks the start of worship, which usually lasts one hour, followed by a time of refreshments and conversation in Geneva Hall.   Everyone is encouraged to join us in Geneva Hall after worship, though if your schedule or situation doesn't fit, we totally understand if you need to be on your way after the service.
  • PARKING: Parking can be challenging right now during the construction on Elgin Street.   Unless you're walking, bussing, or using time-travel to get to Knox, you'll want to give yourself enough time to secure a place for your vehicle as we also don't have our own parking lot.   All this said, FREE PARKING is available on most nearby streets on weekends.
  • GOOD NEWS ABOUT CITY HALL PARKADE: Ottawa City Hall recently passed a motion granting FREE parking at the City Hall Parkade on evenings and weekends, lasting through to the conclusion of Elgin street construction in 2019.   The Parkade is accessible from the west entrance at Elgin & Nepean or the North doors from Laurier Avenue.  Knox is directly south of City Hall at the corner of Lisgar and Elgin Streets.
