A future built for community

About Copperlight

A history steeped in faith

The story of Copperlight:
Experience the next chapter of the Stratford Knox Church

Years before the City of Stratford was established, the Knox Presbyterian Church was founded. Eventually settling at the current Ontario Street location, the church has gone through many seasons of change and regrowth.

Looking forward

A hub for creative expression

For over a century and a half, the Knox Church has adapted to continue serving the community. Through a partnership with BMI Group and Samen Investeren, it will continue as Copperlight, a community arts and faith centre to be used for creative and cultural expression. Find your creative place at Copperlight by hosting an event, attending a program, or seeing a show.
