First Mennonite Church was founded in the 1920s by Mennonites of German descent. Today we are a multicultural community of faith which celebrates a diversity of perspectives. Music, education and the arts play an important role in the formation and expression of faith for us. We attempt to nurture the strengths of past traditions while exploring and blending new forms and expressions.
At First Mennonite Church we hope to develop fellowship in the midst of the diversity. This diversity may be expressed in differing views and tastes or simply come as a result of our being spread throughout the city. We extend our invitation for you to come, experience, and learn more about First Mennonite Church in Winnipeg and consider adding to the diversity and tradition of our faith community.
First Mennonite Church of Winnipeg is a congregation rooted in the Anabaptist faith tradition and is a member of Mennonite Church Manitoba, Mennonite Church Canada and Mennonite World Conference. Our beliefs and practices are broadly reflected in the Confession of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective. To get a sense of our contemporary thought and practice as a national church see our denominational magazine Canadian Mennonite.
