Northside Community Church (Mission, British Columbia, Canada)
The Mission Community Fellowship closed in February 1999, but a congregation was restarted at the same location in October of the same year under the name Northside Community Church. The congregation joined the British Columbia Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches in May 2000. The new congregation began adding an enlarged foyer and Sunday school space to its building in 2000.
The language of worship is English. The congregation had 31 members in 2000. The leading minister in 2010 was Ron Redekop, pastor since 1999. In 2010 the average weekly attendance was 265.
In 2014 the congregation experienced a time of leadership instability and adult weekly attendance dropped from approximately 300 to 200. Eventually the BC Conference of MB Churches approached Northview Community Church in the neighboring city of Abbotsford with a proposal to assume leadership of Northside Community Church. On 9 November 2014 the Northside congregation voted 97% in favor of being adopted/replanted by Northview. On 26 January 2015, Northview agreed to replant Northside Community Church as a Northview Mission campus, with formal leadership beginning on 1 February 2015. On that date the Northside congregation held its final service.
