Brotherfield Mennonite Brethren Church, a country church six miles west of Waldheim, was the mother church of the Waldheim Mennonite Brethren (MB) Church. In 1918 a number of Brotherfield members who lived in or near to the town of Waldheim decided to organize their own church because winter driving to Brotherfield was difficult. This organizational meeting was led by Elder David Dyck, the leader of the Brotherfield Church, with 88 members. Congregational services were held first in an empty store, next in the Empress Hotel, and then in the old public school. The first building was occupied in 1920, with a subsequent building program in 1982.

Waldheim amalgamated with Ebenfeld Mennonite Brethren (Laird, Saskatchewan) in 1973 and Brotherfield Mennonite Brethren on 2 October 1988. The language of worship is English; the transition from German occurred in the 1960s.
