Community Votes 2023

Since 1851

The Spire is a vibrant community hub for the arts and non-profit groups, as well as serving as one of Kingston’s best large performance venues. For more than 170 years, the magnificent historic building at 82 Sydenham Street has been a notable Kingston landmark.

Open its doors on any particular day and see the bustle of activity for social and entrepreneurial organizations that have made The Spire their home. People of all ages, backgrounds, and convictions gather to celebrate the arts, to sing, to act, to dance, to meditate, to find safe harbour and to learn together. Today it is home to more than 20 community and cultural groups — with all their varied activities and interests.

The Spire continues to develop 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 remains an ever stronger beacon of hope, inspiration, and joy.

An open and enduring downtown hub, The Spire is accessible and welcoming to Kingstonians daily. Since its original function as an 1850s Methodist Church, this building has been ready to accommodate community members. From office space leasing to performance hall rentals, The Spire offers many safe and affordable  possibilities to our neighbourhood and community.
