Welcome to

Knox         Church

Waitara

Helping you find and follow jesus

You may have discovered that, as a church, we are much more than a service that meets on a Sunday. We are a diverse community discovering what it means to live with the possibility of God in our midst; God on the job, God at home, God in the classroom, or God in the office. Jesus defined the church as, where two or three meet together in my name. For us, church could be a group impromptu meeting for coffee, it could be the annual Big Bonfire on the Finer's Farm, or even the weekly Sunday morning worship celebration. Church is not where you meet but who you meet. Church is you as part of a divine corporate identity. It is about allowing relationships to go deeper, it is about hospitality, it is about discovering a measure of God in each other.

Microchurch

Micro-Church is Knox's small group network.  As the name suggests, each group is a church.  This is in keeping with Jesus' definition of church as "where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them" (Mt 18:20).  

Each Micro-Church group is given the freedom to function as an autonomous community within the larger church community.   

God primarily is a relational God, "God is love" (1 John 4:8).  As beings made in the image of God, people are primarily relational beings.  As a consequence, we all have a deep-seated need for social interaction and a need to belong to a community.  The intent of Micro-Church is to create a forum where meaningful social interaction can take place.  In reality, this means people connecting with each other takes precedence over get a job done; hospitality trumps function.  Eating together, Fun, Friendship, Enjoying others company, meaningful conversation, feeling at ease, a low threat environment, no pressure, discovery, atmosphere, and spontaneity, are all concepts that convey what we mean by Micro-Church.
