The Spiritual Life Committee has engaged Glen Pearson and other guest speakers to provide thoughtful and inspiring sermons to the Wesley-Knox community. We are most blessed that many individuals have stepped forward to offer leadership during this transformative period. The love for Wesley-Knox and Jesus Christ has been demonstrated in so many acts – large and small.  Leadership Council continues to work with Regional Council to engage Rev Tom Hiscock as worship leader.  Our long term strategy is to define the pastoral leadership for Wesley-Knox and search for a permanent Minister.
