Administrative history
The North Kildonan area of Winnipeg was first settled by Mennonites in 1928 after immigrants came to Canada a few years earlier and settled in the core area of Winnipeg. The North Kildonan area was set up to be a rural Mennonite village with small farm lots which appealed to the immigrant Mennonites. New arrivals came again after the second World War and soon this was a cosmopolitan urban area.

The early pioneers were members of the North End MB Church but because the distances were too great a Sunday School programme and soon a worship service were begun in 1928 in private homes. The first meeting house was built in 1929 and served both the Mennonite Brethren (MB) and the General Conference (GC) Mennonites. In 1935 the GCs built their own meeting house. The MB meeting house was located on Edison Avenue and was enlarged five times. Then in 1956 a new meeting house was built on Kingsford Avenue. This building was destroyed by fire in 1998. A new meeting house was then built on Gateway Road in 2000.

The leaders of the congregation were: Johann J. Klassen (1928), Gerhard Klassen (1928–1929) the son of Johann Klassen, Herman Klassen (ca.1930–1933), Heinrich M. Janzen (1933–1937), Gerhard Epp (1938–1942), A. Heinrich Toews (1942–1950), I. W. Redekopp (1950–1953), William Falk (1953–1964), Victor Toews (1965), Wm. Neufeld (1966–1978), Roland Marsch (1979–1986), Victor Toews (1987), John Epp (1988–1993), Alvin Enns (1994), Johannes Stolz (1995–1998), Bob Marsch (1999), George Klassen (2000– ).

The language of worship is English and German.
