Vintage 242 Church (Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada)
Vintage 242 Church began in November 2004 as a church that attempted to reach out to young Christians. They based their name on Acts 2:42. Johnny Thiessen was the congregation’s pastor throughout its history. At first the new church plant met at Highland Community Church, where they met Sunday evenings. In September 2007 the church began meeting Sunday mornings at the Cinema 6 movie theatre. When that theatre ceased operations, the church met at Towne Cinema theatre.
The congregation joined the British Columbia Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches in 2005 and closed in July 2009.
