Alderbrook Community Church in west Abbotsford was launched on 16 September 2001 with Paul Loewen as the pastor. The congregation was self-supporting and self-governing from its beginning. It had a core group from Northview Community Church as its launch team and quickly grew to an attendance of more than 150 people. The congregation joined the British Columbia Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches in May 2002. The congregation had 85 members in 2006.
At first the congregation met in Dave Kandal Elementary school. In September 2004 they relocated to Center Ice, a recreation center in Abbotsford. In 2013 the congregation relocated again to the chapel of Columbia Bible College (CBC), and its offices were relocated to the third floor of the Columbia Resource Centre on the CBC campus.
In 2010 the congregation had 35 members and an average weekly attendance of 175.
