Knox Presbyterian Church is a Presbyterian Church in Canada Congregation in the Georgetown section of Halton Hills, Ontario Canada. It is named after John Knox, a founder of Presbyterianism in Scotland.
Knox Church officially began in 1860. A one-storey brick church was erected in 1867. This was the first brick church in Halton County, and was located at the present Main St. & Church St. site of today's church.
The congregation continued to grow rapidly, and in 1887, the one-storey brick church was torn down and a new stone church was erected. The new Church had a seating capacity of approximately 500.
On February 16, 1901, the Church was destroyed by fire which was believed to have started in the furnace room. It was quickly rebuilt.
Since 1860, it has been part of a two-point pastoral charge with Limehouse Presbyterian Church, located north and west of Georgetown in Limehouse.
Rev. Dr. James W. Cooper was one of the ministers of this congregation, arriving from Port Credit in August 2006 until 2012.
