We're Knox.

Knox Presbyterian Church is a group of people who regularly gather together in worship, are growing in our relationship with God, seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and strive to proclaim the love and good news of Jesus Christ through all we say and do. We are a family of faith who gather regularly to worship, to learn, to fellowship, and to serve. We are a growing congregation and welcome those who are searching, who are new to faith, and who are looking for a church home.   

We are:

  • A family of faith on a journey of freedom to worship, grow, love, and serve.
  • A community of faith in the community of Port Dover
  • A congregation of the Presbyterian Church in Canada

Rev. Pamela Hogewoning


Pastor Pam has been serving Knox since the summer of 2016. She and her family are grateful God has called them to this congregation and this community. As pastor of Knox Church in Port Dover, Pam has a desire to see people grow in their relationship with God, deepen their relationships with those in our church family and in the community as well as be active as witnesses to the love of Jesus in serving one another and the community. 

We Believe


As Presbyterians, we believe in the triune God. In other words, God is one God, yet revealed in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible is the written revelation of who God is. It is important to gather weekly for worship and to also regularly experience the sacraments of communion. Baptism is seen as a visible sign of God’s promise to God’s people.

The Story of Knox

To learn more about our history and the history of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, please visit our Archives and Museum websites.

Our church family developed through the desire to gather in worship & grow in faith.

Knox Presbyterian in Port Dover celebrated 172 years in the fall of 2017. Today Knox still celebrates its Scottish heritage in our annual Robbie Burns Dinner, but our congregation reflects a diversity of backgrounds. In 1850, Knox worshipped for the first time in a house on McNab Street. Our first church building was erected at the current site a few years later. In the same spot Knox rebuilt in 1960-1961. This building, on the corner of St. George and Chapman, is where we continue to gather weekly to worship God and grow in our faith. Throughout our history, our Knox family has been involved with various activities and community organizations. This heritage is continued through the efforts of the Heather Club, various community events and outreaches, and in the lives of our congregants as they volunteer in many community service groups.
