At the 2006 convention of the British Columbia (BC) Conference of Mennonite Brethren (MB) Churches, delegates accepted Westside Church, planted under the auspices of Ignite Vancouver, a church planting initiative of the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. The church, led by Norm Funk, began holding services on 25 September 2005, meeting in the Fifth Avenue Cinemas in the Kitsilano area of Vancouver. In 2008 the church had 100 members and an average Sunday attendance of 400. By 2010 membership had grown to 275 with an average attendance of 585. By this time the church had participated in the planting of Reality Vancouver.

After several years the church relocated to the Granville Island Stage on Granville Island in Vancouver and in April 2012 Westside established the Westside Northshore campus in North Vancouver. At that time three Sunday morning services were being held at the Granville Island site, with an average weekly attendance of 900.
