Experience God's Presence:
Throughout the week, at various times and places, some of God's people gather in smaller groups to care for one another. On Sunday, we come together as a large congregation to prayerfully express our worship to God and enjoy the inspiration of relevant and practical learning from the Bible Between those smaller gatherings and larger celebrations, we represent God among the people with whom we live in our homes and neighbourhoods, and with whom we work.
Should you choose to join us for Sunday worship, our prayer is that you will experience God's presence and the care of God's people as we spend the hour together.

The Mennonites find their roots in a movement that began in Europe in the early 1500's. Our spiritual ancestors had a desire to live the way Jesus wanted them to live. The Bible, which contains the record of His life and teachings, was the guide they used in deciding what to believe and how to live.
Our name comes from one of the early leaders of the movement. His name was Menno Simons. The Mennonite Brethren formed as a group while they, along with other Mennonites, were living in the Ukraine in 1860.
Today there are close to 2000 Mennonite Brethren churches in 20 countries throughout the world with a total of over 212,000 members (1995 statistics). We in Canada, with 29,000 members, are outnumbered by 72,000 in the Congo and 65,000 in India. There are Mennonite Brethren churches in countries as diverse as the former U.S.S.R., Argentina, Angola, Japan, Panama and Portugal.
While there are quite a number of Mennonite groups, we work together in many local and international ventures under jointly operated organizations such as Mennonite Disaster Service (specializing in disaster relief) and Mennonite Central Committee (focusing on relief and development as well as peace and justice issues).
