Elmwood Mennonite Brethren Church (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada)

Through the 1920s several Mennonites immigrated to Winnipeg in the Soviet Union, and by 1929 a new sanctuary was erected on College Avenue. In 1953, a decision was reached to leave this place and construct a new church on Henderson Highway, subsequently called Kelvin Street.

The closeness of the Mennonite Brethren Bible College accounted for the fact that staff and pupils attended services at Elmwood and enriched the life of their congregation. In the 1950s, besides supplying the typical German excursions, English services were started. German Bible conferences, called Bibelbesprechungen, were held annually between Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Speakers dealt with a scriptural theme or some of the Bible, often a Pauline epistle. The German Service, that was a characteristic of Elmwood because its inception, received a renewed stimulus from the 1990s, when young households came from South America. Abe and Irene Neufeld took on responsibility for its further improvement.
