The Pineridge Christian Fellowship in Calgary, Alberta began services in 1976, and formally organized in 1978. The first building was occupied in 1980. The congregation originated through outreach by First Mennonite Church and Foothills Mennonite Church.
The congregation was earlier known as Calgary Mennonite Fellowship; it changed its name in 1990. The congregation withdrew from Mennonite Church Alberta because it was dissatisfied with the approach that conference in disciplining the Calgary Inter-Mennonite Church. The Pineridge congregation maintained membership in the Northwest Mennonite Conference for several years.
