Sydenham Street United Church

Two-Church Worship Services

Two Churches

At the beginning of 2018 we started joint worship services with Chalmers United Church (212 Barrie Street).

The location alternates every month except for the summer.  SSUC services will be in June, July, September, and November. The other months will be at Chalmers. The time remains at 10:30.

Sunday morning services are available on YouTube as they take place: here for services at Sydenham Street, here for services at Chalmers. Sermons from previous Sundays are also available.

Affirm United

Sydenham Street United Church is an inviting haven in a hurried world. Constructed in 1852, the building is a landmark in historic downtown Kingston. Rebranded as “The Spire”, it is home to a number of not-for-profit community organizations as well as the congregation.

Part of the United Church of Canada, we are an Affirming congregation, celebrating more than 200 years of faith since our founding as a Methodist congregation in 1811.

Our historic building welcomes you, as it has welcomed generations of worshippers and musicians: we are among the finest concert halls in the area, a favoured venue for concerts and events.

Our activities are organized into three communities of interest within our congregation

Engaging the spirit

Deepening our spiritual relatedness through worship and caring for one another

Art and Soul

Incorporating artistic experience into worship and nurturing the arts community

Social Justice and Outreach

Promoting Fair Treatment for all in our community and the world at large
