Westwood Community Church (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada)
The Westwood Community Church in Winnipeg, Manitoba came into existence in January 1979 in order to create another gospel witness in the far west of Winnipeg where a significant number of Mennonite Brethren had taken up residence. A Christian Service Brigade (CSB) program conducted by the Portage Avenue Mennonite Brethren Church in the Westwood suburb for a number of years previous was a forerunner to the creation of the church. After meeting in Bedson and Columbus schools for ten years, the congregation dedicated its own newly constructed building in February 1989.
