Knox Presbyterian Church
Tiverton, Ontario - 150 years

Book commemorates Tiverton Knox Presbyterian Church 150th anniversary

From the scrapbook collection of Alberta Smith and recollections of the congregation of
Knox Presbyterian Church, Tiverton, Ontario. First Edition December 2008 © 2008

Our thanks to the Knox Presbyterian Church for allowing us to publish their book on our site.


As we look back over 150 years and try to record the history of this congregation, we realize there are many gaps in our church’s story. Our records are not complete, some have been lost, and some events were probably never recorded or preserved. We have tried to accurately record the materials that we had. We are grateful to those many people who have contributed clippings, pictures, stories and memories. If you find mistakes, please forgive us – we did our best! To those who have helped in any way in putting this book together, we offer humble thanks – you have made this possible.

This book is the story of people, from pioneer days to the present time – people of faith who were dedicated, resourceful, conscientious and grateful to God for His blessings. This book is one of memories more than history. To name all who carried out the work of Knox Church congregation during the 150 years would be impossible. They and you have served by prayer and service, and by faithful attendance at worship week by week, and are known to God. To you who will continue in the years ahead as Christ’s disciples in Knox Church, be assured that God is at work with you, renewing your strength and upholding you with His love.

Hold high the torch; you did not light its glow
Twas given you by other hands, you know.
I think it started down its pathway bright
The day the Master said, “Let there be light.”
And He once said, who hung on Calvary’s tree,
“You are the light of the word – Go shine for me.”
