The Ninga Mennonite congregation in Manitoba began services in 1931, and formally organized in 1951. The congregation originated through immigration from the Soviet Union. It was part of the Whitewater group of churches. It amalgamated with Whitewater when a new church was constructed at Boissevain in 1960. Five families also joined the Killarney Mennonite Church.

The group met in a rented church. Abram J. Neufeld served as the last congregational leader. The congregation dissolved in 1960. It had been affiliated with the Conference of Mennonites in Canada. The language of worship was German.
