Governance & Organization

Knox Church is governed primarily through a group of Elders called 'Session' for spiritual and faith related matters, and secondarily by what we call our 'Temporal Board' which manages our finances, facilities and other resources.     

As a Presbyterian congregation, we are governed locally by our own Elders, though we have affiliations with our regional assembly called The Presbytery of Ottawa, and nationally through our denomination called the Presbyterian Church in Canada.
