Our Story

How it all started...

Kingston Alliance Church was founded by five dedicated individuals in 1959; Warren and Joy Fallis, Jack and Beulah Smith and “Aunt” Mabel Johnston.

They began with prayer, that God would send a pastor to establish and grow His church in Kingston. Their prayers were answered when God led Rev Paul Valentine and his wife Gayle to leave their ministry in Orillia to plant the Alliance Church in Kingston.

Meeting originally in his basement, the numbers were too large to remain there for long. In September 1959, the church began meeting in Liberal Hall where they remained for three and a half years.

Expanding the vision...

In 1962, federal land at the corner of Palace and Bath roads went up for sale and the church was able to secure a lot. Construction began that year and the dedication service for the new building was held on March 10, 1963 at 3 pm.

By the 1970s, the church was growing and an extension (the current sanctuary) was added. The 1980s saw the church sponsor 23 Cambodian refugees, begin the AWANA program that continues to this day and sadly suffer a heartbreaking church split led by the senior pastor at the time.

A new pastor Dr. L David Mitchell came in to heal the wounds of the remaining members. He served until the current pastor, Rev Paul Silcock, came to minister in 1996. The newest phase of construction (the lower foyer and elevator) were installed in the first few years after Pastor Paul and Lily arrived.

Where we are headed...

Our desire is to re-energize and rebuild KAC after two years of  challenges and divisiveness experienced during the Covid pandemic.  We desire to  be a church that is creative  and  gets its inspiration from the Holy Spirit about what God is calling KAC to do.

We seek  to continue to be committed to local and Global missions, relating to different cultures and connecting with people different(in both thought and culture)than  ourselves.

With an older church population we desire to strength our ministry to young adults, young families and children while we continue to reach out to the needs with in our community through our ministry Storehouse of Hope.
