 Shelter / Hub Update

Following the  temporary  closure of the Shelter/Hub (funded by the Kenora District Services Board – KDSB and operated by the NeChee Friendship Centre) a soft re-opening of Shelter has happened.  People seeking overnight shelter can arrive at 7 pm, have a meal, showers, do their laundry and a warm bed for the night.  Breakfasts and Lunches are being provided by the Fellowship Centre and Suppers by the Jubilee Church until a more permanent re-opening of the Service Hub, hopefully in the New Year. Donations of food and clothing may be sent to the Fellowship Centre from 8am – 2 pm Monday – Sunday.  If you can help with lunches or breakfasts, please call Bernice at 467-8205.  

Long term solutions will require broad community collaboration and the resources of many sectors in the community. At Knox, we remember that Jesus reached out to those society shunned, and as followers of Jesus, we are called to walk that same path. Please hold those affected by trauma, mental health issues, homelessness and addiction in your prayers as well as staff of the Shelter, and the Fellowship Centre staff and volunteers and the Jubilee Church staff and volunteers.



Knox is a Affirming Congregation

At Knox United Church, we celebrate diversity. In God’s world we are diverse in gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, culture, age, physical ability, religious perspective, and economic status. Jesus met people wherever they were in their journey. Relationship changes us. Knox is an evolving community of faith that seeks to intentionally welcome new perspectives and leadership.
