Fort Garry Mennonite Fellowship (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada)
The Fort Garry Mennonite Fellowship is a congregation that emerged as an initiative of members of the Winnipeg Bergthaler Mennonite Church (later known as Home Street Mennonite Church) and persons moving to live in the Fort Garry area. It began services in 1966 in the Fort Garry area of Winnipeg and the group formally organized in 1967. The language of worship was English. The Fellowship met in rented facilities at Canadian Nazarene College until 1981 and then at Canadian Mennonite Bible College. In December 1984, the group moved into its newly constructed meeting place at 150 Bayridge Avenue. A lay ministry team of non-salaried congregational leaders has served this congregation from its beginning.
