What to Expect on Sunday

All services are online for the time being, but when we return to in-person services, here are some of the things you can expect at Bethel!

Our People

Our diverse community is blessed to have:

  • a large number of undergrad, grad, and post-grad students from Queen’s University, Royal Military College and St. Lawrence College 
  • life-long Kingstonians, some of whom have called Bethel their church home since childhood
  • families with children of all ages – from newborn babies to high school grads
  • a large number of young professionals
  • people at different places in their spiritual journey, from seeking spiritual conversations to committed Christ followers
  • people from different denominational/church backgrounds, and others who have no church background at all

Parking & Transit

Drivers: If you have a young family or have accessibility and mobility issues, please use our small on-site parking lot or the parking lot at the Robert Reid Funeral Home across the street from us. If you are able to walk a few blocks, please park along the surrounding the streets as signage permits. Bethel attendees also have permission to park along the perimeter of the Metro grocery store parking lot during church services, located 1 block north at Barrie & Brock Streets.

Cyclists: A bike rack is available in our parking lot and at the side of the building.

City Bus: Kingston Transit bus routes 12 & 702 stop right at our building at Johnson & Barrie Streets. Visit the City of Kingston website for current bus schedules.

Worship Services

The service includes some music & singing, bible reading, and a message from one of our teaching team members. Between our two services, you can join us for Coffee & Conversation in the gym behind the sanctuary!

We have the exact same service at 9am & 11am and our services are about 75 minutes in length. Our 9am services tend to be a bit fuller than our later service due to Family and Youth Ministries happening elsewhere at the 9am in the church building.

Dress Code

What dress code?! At our services, you will see everything from jeans to suits. We have a casual atmosphere, so you can wear what you normally wear during the week, or feel free to dress up if you’d like. (You can bring in your coffee and tea as well!)

Where do I go?

Ask a greeter! (A person with an orange lanyard)

Am I expected to give money?

If you are a guest, you are under no obligation to give! There will be an offering taken in the service for those who call Bethel home, and if you’d like to bless us, please do!
