Historic Sites of Manitoba: Elmwood Mennonite Brethren Church (145 Henderson Highway, Winnipeg)

Originally founded in 1911, this Mennonite Brethren Church was located at 533 Burrows Avenue and later at 621 College Avenue. In 1953, its congregation decided to build a new, larger church on Kelvin Street, later renamed Henderson Highway. It was named the Elmwood Mennonite Brethren Church and opened its doors in 1954.

Among the clerics of Elmwood Mennonite Brethren Church was Bernhard B. Fast (five years).
