Main Centre, SK. Located 2 miles west of Main Centre. In 1925 there were 16 members; in 1950, 65. The congregation dissolved in 1962. It had been affiliated with the Conference of Mennonites in Canada (1943-1962) and the General Conference Mennonite Church (1941-1962). The language of worship was English; the transition from German occurred in 1940-45.

The Capeland Mennonite congregation in Main Centre, Saskatchewan, formally organized in 1940. John J. Nickel is considered the founding leader of the group. Capeland was an affiliate of Herbert Mennonite until 1940, when the church separated because it wished to practice both forms of baptism, pouring as well as immersing. It left the General Conference Mennonite Church in 1962 and joined the Evangelical Mennonite Brethren. In 1925 there were 16 members; in 1950, 65.
