Crosshill Mennonite Church (Millbank, Ontario, Canada)
Crosshill Mennonite Church began services in 1949, and formally organized in 1970. The first building was occupied in 1949. The congregation originated through division from Maple View Mennonite due to congregational size. It was part of Maple View Mennonite Church's membership prior to 1970 when it was known as the Wellesley Amish Mennonite congregation.
In 1949 the congregation purchased the former Boyd's Presbyterian Church built in 1888. An addition was built in 1971. In 2006 the congregation completed a new facility that provides accessible space for more congregational and community activities. The language of worship is English.
The leaders of the congregation have been Stevanus Gerber (1970-1985), Raymond Erb (1986-1994), and James Gerber (1995- ).
