Dates of existence



Bethel Mennonite Church began in January 1938 when Benjamin Ewert, a minister ordained by the Bergthaler Mennonite Church, was commissioned by the Canadian Conference of Mennonites to visit Mennonite families in Winnipeg and surrounding settlements. At first they held service in the Emmanual Baptist Church at Sargent Avenue and Furby Street. Later they rented a church at the corner of Sherbrook Street and Sargent Avenue and held services there until 1945, when they purchased a church building at 103 Furby Street. In 1955 a property was acquired at the corner of Stafford and Carter and built a new church building. Known initially as the Bethel Mission or Bethel Mennonite Mission Chruch, the name became Bethel Mennonite church when then relocated to Stafford Avenue in 1955.
