The Spire is a vibrant community hub for the arts and non-profit groups, as well as serving as one of Kingston’s best performance venues. For more than 160 years, the magnificent historic building at 82 Sydenham Street has been a notable Kingston landmark.

Open its doors on any particular day and The Spire is a bustle of activity and a seedbed for organizations both entrepreneurial and social. People of all ages, backgrounds, and convictions gather to celebrate the arts, to sing, to act, to dance, to find safe harbour and to learn together. Today, it is home to more than 20 not-for-profit groups, including the congregation of Sydenham Street United Church.

The Spire continues to transform and open its doors to ever-broadening uses and people; it has a renewed life as a welcoming place to gather within our community and an even stronger beacon of hope, inspiration, and joy.

An open and accepting downtown hub, The Spire serves 1,200 Kingstonians weekly. Since its roots as an 1850s Methodist Church, this building has been open to all. From office space leasing to performance hall rentals, The Spire has something for everyone.
