Our Beginnings

On February 26, 1961 people gathered to worship at Margaret D. Bennie School in Leamington, Ontario.  On June 18, 1961 a covenanting service was held.  The first building was occupied in 1964.  George Janzen is considered the founding leader of the group.  The congregation originated through a desire to hold worship in the English language.
