Alberta Mennonite Brethren Missions started a city mission in Calgary in the 1950s. From this emerged the Calgary Mennonite Brethren Church in 1956 with 41 charter members. Jacob A. Froese is considered the founding leader of the group. They met in rented facilities until 1962, when they completed their own sanctuary. Later an educational wing was added. In 1980 the membership stood at 311. In 1983 they divided the congregation to form the Dalhousie Mennonite Brethren Church.
