3 Our Mission Statement Knox Presbyterian Church, Tiverton, exists to provide Christian worship, guidance, education, and fellowship suitable for all people. We desire to be a practical, caring, and concerned church with a special regard for those who have particular physical, spiritual, and emotional needs. We seek to be a prayerful congregation.

4 Our Mission Statement While seeking to promote and maintain good communication within our existing membership, we also wish to be a welcoming church -- extending an invitation to new people in our community, people with no church connection, and those who may not have maintained their connection with the church -- in hopes that they might become part of our worship and fellowship.

5 The Beauty of Knox Tiverton
Our church is situated on the main street. The present church was built in 1900. The “Access Project” in 1992 saw the construction of an addition to our church that would make it accessible to everyone. The manse is located beside the church. It is a bungalow style with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a finished basement.

For example: The WMS recently purchased a sewing machine that was sent to Guatemala. Knox fundraises for the Teeswater Cropshare. The Sunday school supports Sleeping Children Around the World. The congregation participates in White Gift Sunday at Christmas.

The people are predominantly farmers or hydro workers at nearby Bruce Power. We also rub shoulders with a growing Amish community.
