Why is Community Important to Knox?
For Knox, community equals church. In fact, the Greek word from which church is translated could also mean community. It would be an understatement to say that this means relationships are important. We know that it is in relationships that we experience the divine. And we know that as we get to know one another, we find ways of making our community a healthy place.
We all thrive on diversity. Someone said once that variety is the spice of life, but it should be said that diversity is the spice of life.
Knox has committed to being a better neighbour which means to know and to be known by our neighbours. We are always looking for ways to meet up, to talk about new ideas and to find creative ways to keep our community interesting.
Knox will always prioritize supporting local businesses, organizations, entrepreneurs, individuals, and families. The relationships created are beneficial to both parties whether it is through monetary, emotional, or social support. Knox's intention is to build-up the neighbourhood.
Sustainable Calgary 2020 Report states:
"For decades, a high number of Calgarians have reported being physically active. But we have seen less arts attendance and increasing crime rates over the past 5 years.
These 2 reversals of long-term trends are probably related to our faltering economy. Surveys suggest an upward trend in community association memberships, but renewal of leadership and the maintenance of facilities are looming issues."
Knox's has dedicated its resources to being a part of the solution in building Calgary's neighbourhoods back-up and revitalizing our communities.
1 in 3 Calgarians feel like they don't belong in their community.
40% of Calgarians feel they do not know their neighbours well enough to seek help.
1 in 5 Canadians experience loneliness or social isolation.
