History

The Elmwood Mennonite Brethren Church traces its beginning to 1907 when Johann Warkentin, leading minister in the Winkler Mennonite Brethren Church gathered believers together in Winnipeg for the purpose of establishing a Mennonite Brethren mission. Known as the Winnipeg City Mission, the group began meeting in a small chapel on Burrows Avenue in 1911. In 1913 they were formally organized as the Winnipeg Mennonite Brethren Church meeting. They met in the North End Chapel until a building was completed on College Avenue in 1929. As other Mennonite Brethren groups began to meet in North Kildonan and in Winnipeg's South End, the congregation meeting in the North End Chapel, was called the North End Mennonite Brethren Church. In 1953, a decision was reached to leave the location in Winnipeg's North End and build a new church on Henderson Highway, then called Kelvin Street. It was named the Elmwood Mennonite Brethren Church upon completion in 1954.
