Vineland Mennonite Brethren Church (Vineland, Ontario, Canada)
The Vineland Mennonite Brethren congregation at Vineland, Ontario began services in 1927, and formally organized on 20 November 1932 under the leadership of D. Klassen. The first building was occupied in 1937, with a subsequent building program in 1960. The first meeting place was a rented implement shed where services were held with members of the United Mennonite Church. Later the building was bought by the congregation and converted into an attractive church building, with a tabernacle-like appearance. The congregation originated through immigration from the Soviet Union and from Alberta.
