The St. Boniface Evangelical Christian congregation in the St. Boniface area of Winnipeg, Manitoba began services in 1982, and formally organized about 1987. The first building was dedicated in 1989. Dick and Gertrude Neufeld are considered the founding leaders of the group. The congregation originated through outreach by the Manitoba Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches.
The language of worship was English and French in the early years, but later shifted to English-only.
The congregation closed on 7 June 1998 after completing restoration of the church building following a fire in February 1998. In 1999 the St. Vital Mennonite Brethren congregation moved to the location and became known as the Crossroads Mennonite Brethren Church.
The congregation's address was 231 Kitson St., St. Boniface, MB.
