The Springfield Heights congregation in Winnipeg, MB began services and formally organized in 1964. The first building was occupied in 1965, with a subsequent building program in 1978. Bruno Enss is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through division from North Kildonan Mennonite due to the latter's size and the desire of some to use the German language. By the end of 1965 the membership was already 307 with increasing transfers from other Mennonite congregations in Winnipeg and continuing immigration from South America.
