Administrative history

The Alberta Mennonite Brethren Missions had started a city mission in Calgary in the 1950s. From this emerged the Calgary Mennonite Brethren Church in 1956 with 41 charter members. They met in rented facilities. In 1962 they completed their own meeting house. Later an educational wing was added. In 1980 the membership stood at 311. In 1983 they divided the congregation to form the Dalhousie Mennonite Brethren Church. In 2000 the membership stood at 219. The leaders of the congregation were: Abram Rempel (1956-1958), Abr. Regier (1959-1962), Henry Willms (1963, 1975-1982), J. Bergen (1964-1965), J. Schmidt (1966), A. L.
