The church owes its origins to a few persons who, in the winter of 1831-32 instituted a course of religious lectures at the Quincy Town Hall for the purpose of teaching the truths of Evangelical Christianity as maintained by Congregationalists.

Bethany is in its third church building. The first was built on Hancock Street in 1834 and occupied until 1871. The second church building was built in 1871 in Quincy Square at the corner of Hancock and Chestnut Street. While in the second church, in 1896, the name was changed from Evangelical Congregational Church to Bethany Congregational Church. That site later became the home of the Granite Trust Bank.
