The Queensboro Mennonite Brethren congregation at New Westminster, British Columbia, began services about 1955, and formally organized in 1960. The first building was occupied in 1955. Nick Goertz and John Goertz are considered the founding leaders of the group. The congregation originated through outreach by Strawberry Hill Mennonite Brethren and the West Coast Children's Mission.

Queensboro is an area on Lulu Island outside New Westminster. The group was originally known as Queensboro Gospel Chapel. It dissolved in 1974 due to population shifts.

The congregation was located at 1308 Ewen Avenue, New Westminster, BC.
