Transcona Community Church (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Transcona Community Church in Winnipeg, Manitoba began services and formally organized in 1983. The group first met in a school gym. The congregation originated through outreach by Winnipeg Mennonite Brethren churches and the Manitoba Mennonite Brethren Conference.

The congregation had attendance of well over 100 in the mid-1980s, but internal conflicts over leadership style in 1987 led to a splintering of the congregation. At that time Edward Hamm resigned as pastor, having served for three years (1984-87).

The congregation dissolved in 1992.

The congregation met at the Palliser Furniture Co. on Pandora Ave. Pastor John Walker served in 1990 as a congregational leader.
