The Thompson Christian Centre Fellowship began services in 1972, and formally organized in 1981. The first building was occupied in the 1980s. Gary Sawatzky is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through colonization of northern Manitoba and outreach by the Mennonite Brethren Church of Manitoba.After using rental space for a number of years, the congregation acquired their own building in 1984 and renovated it for congregational use.
