Administrative history

The Mullingar Mennonite Brethren Church, located in northern Saskatchewan, was a member of the Canadian Conference of the Mennonite Brethren Churches, Rosthern District. On December 11, 1927 Mennonite Brethren farmers on C.P.R. land at Mullingar and Mayfair met to organize. Martin Unruh was chosen to be the leader of 25 charter members. A church building was erected in 1928. Church leaders were: Martin K. Unruh (1927-1931), J.J. Klassen (1931-1932), F.P. Froese (1932-1937) and B.J. Derksen (1937-1953). In 1947 the church had 16 members. The church register shows that four members transferred to British Columbia and two members transferred to Manitoba in 1948. In 1955 the leader B.J. Derksen reported to the Northern District Conference that people had moved away except for two families. There had been no services in the past year. Derksen himself wanted to transfer to the Glenbush M.B. Church. The Conference declared Mullingar dissolved. The membership and family register shows that over the course of time 66 members were registered in the Mullingar M.B. Church.

Custodial history

Many of the records were microfilmed in 1978 through the work of the Historical Commission of the Mennonite Brethren Conference. The textual records came to the Centre for Mennonite Brethren Studies in 1996 from the Bethany Bible School in Saskatchewan where they had been housed.

Scope and content

This fonds consists of the following series: Minutes of congregational meetings, membership and family records. Although the church closed in 1955 the records in this fonds extend only to 1947.
