Kingston is a historic city of 25,000 located about halfway between New York City and Albany on the Hudson River. Around the year 2000, a core group of about 20 people felt the need for Reformed worship, to recognize their covenant children, baptize them, and fully embrace the Westminster Standards. Desiring to be confessional, they searched for a church to join themselves to, and found Westminster, about 45 miles away. This was too far from Kingston for most of the group, however, and thus Westminster agreed to help plant this Kingston work.
Westminster's session firmly believes that God will provide the right church planter in His time and will greatly bless the Kingston work and cause it to grow substantially. The core group is already meeting every Sunday for worship in a rented space under Assistant Pastor Mark Diedrich.
