Kronsgart Mennonite Brethren Church in Kronsgart, Manitoba began services and formally organized in 1896 with Jacob Heide as leader. The first building was occupied in 1920 with a subsequent building program in 1954. The congregation originated through outreach by the Winkler Mennonite Brethren Church and the movement of some of that church's members to the Kronsgart area to farm. The congregation dissolved in 1973. The language of worship was German.

Congregational leaders prior to 1955 included Jacob B. Penner, J. J. Buller, P. Shultz, G. Klassen, John J. Neufeld and A. A. Hyde.

After dissolution the church building was moved to Winkler Bible Institute for use as a chapel and library.
