The Crestwood Mennonite Brethren congregation was founded in 1965 by the Alberta Mennonite Brethren Home Missions. In 1968 the congregation officially organized and joined the Alberta Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches and Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. They met in rented facilities until 1969 when they completed construction of their own meeting house. They allowed inter-Mennonite individual membership from 1975.
The congregation received members of the Seven Persons Church when that congregation dissolved in 1975.
