Transcona Community Church (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada)
The Transcona Community Church in Winnipeg, Manitoba began services and formally organized in 1983. The group first met in a school gym. The congregation originated through outreach by Winnipeg Mennonite Brethren churches and Manitoba Conference.
The congregation had attendance of well over 100 in the mid-1980s, but internal conflicts over leadership style in 1987 led to a splintering of the congregation. At that time Ed Hamm resigned as pastor, having served for three years.
In 1985 there were 32 members; in 1992, 12. The congregation dissolved in 1992. It had been affiliated with the Mennonite Brethren Church of Manitoba, the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches and the General Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. The language of worship was English.
The congregation met at the Palliser Furniture Co. on Pandora Ave. Pastor John Walker served in 1990 as a congregational leader.
