Location of the Bright Mennonite Church, Ninth Line & Hubbard, Blandford Township, Oxford County, Ontario. The building was located inside the fence near the location of the sign.

The Bright Mennonite congregation began services in 1938, and formally organized in 1950s. The congregation originated through outreach by the Ontario Mennonite Mission Board and the St. Jacobs Mennonite Church. Initially it was an outreach mission by young people from St. Jacobs Mennonite.

Bright withdrew from the Mennonite Conference of Ontario in 1960 to join Conservative Mennonite Church of Ontario in which Moses Baer was a leader. The congregation ceased to exist in 1969 when Moses Baer left for the Bluevale area further north. The church's building no longer stands.
