History

In the 1950s members from the South End Mennonite Brethren Church conducted a mission Sunday school in the Brooklands area of Manitoba. In 1957 the Home Missions Committee of the Manitoba Mennonite Brethren Church assumed responsibility for this work. In 1963 this committee appointed Abe and Anne Quiring as home missions workers for this mission.
On April 26, 1964 while meeting in the Butterworth school auditorium the church was organized with 12 charter members. A building was built at 44 Tentler Street (Brooklands, later a part of Winnipeg) and on September 19, 1965 a dedication service was held for this place of worship. Initially the church was named the Brooklands Mennonite Brethren Church. In 1966 it was agreed that the name should be Brooklands Community Church of the Mennonite Brethren. The building was enlarged in 1983. The church had a strong Sunday school program, operated a Vacation Bible School for a number of years and several other outreach programs such as the Mom’s program. Membership reached a high of 116 in 1992. The final service (closing celebration) was held on June 22, 1997.
