With Kingston being home to Queen’s University, St. Lawrence College, and RMC, and Bethel has a large student population!


Bethel’s mission is to love God passionately, and serve other’s significantly. One of the ways we do this is through the Adopt-A-Student program.

This program invites new Queen’s, RMC, and St. Lawrence students to be connected with Bethel adults and families, and is designed to welcome them into the community through hospitality and friendship.

Students are connected with hosts, and are invited out to meals, coffees, outings or activities at least four times during the school year.

This program as been creating connections and showing hospitality at Bethel  for over 60 years! Let’s keep the tradition going.

Housing Connections

While Bethel does not facilitate housing for students, we can help you connect with our church community and other Christian student groups on campus.

If you are looking for a rental, or if you have a room available to rent, we recommend that you join our Facebook group Bethel Kingston Community Conversations  to post your housing request to the Bethel community.

Other places to post your rental need or availability are:



Grad & Beyond is a new network of Life Groups designed for young adults to build community, foster relationships, grow in faith, and serve the city around them. Open to young adults aged 22 and older, this group is intended for graduate students, young professionals, or those who are figuring out where life is taking them next!

In partnership with Geneva House, Bethel Church, and Bay Park Baptist Church, Connect Community is designed to build connections between young adults from different Christian communities across the city. Whether you attend Bethel or Bay Park, are affiliated with Geneva House, or are seeking somewhere to belong this year, all are welcome!

Connect Community is designed around a Life Group model. Life Groups of about 8 to 10 people will meet weekly to study the Bible, pray, and serve, and monthly social events will bring the whole Connect Community together for fun and fellowship.

Please also join our Facebook Group to stay updated on social events.
