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.
