Revision as of 14:16, 23 August 2013

Peace Mennonite Church in Regina began evening services September 1985, in Stewart Russel School and formally organized 12 January 1986. It originated through church planting efforts of Grace Mennonite Church due to the latter's size and interest in outreach. 

In 1992/1993 a significant number of members moved out of Regina. This led the congregation to launch a major outreach work with refugees, as well as testing various patterns and locations for worship. In fall 1993 the congregation began to meet at its current location for Bible study and worship on Tuesday evenings and Sunday morning Sunday school. The refugee program has led to the congregation becoming a multi-racial/multi-ethnic congregation.
