The Clearbrook Mennonite Brethren Church began in 1936 to serve the needs of Mennonite Brethren emigrants from South Russia who had come to Canada to escape religious persecution. Since then, the congregation has come to include people from many different communities and various ethnic and denominational backgrounds. Newcomers are welcome at our services and to become a part of our church family.

The church’s music and worship style will appeal to those from various age groups and church backgrounds who appreciate a more traditional, yet vibrant form of Sunday Worship services.

Clearbrook MB church is known for its choral and instrumental music, friendliness, intercessory prayer, preaching, care for seniors, strong support for missions, and its involvement in various humanitarian services in the community.

The church also supported the early development of what is now Columbia Bible College and of the Mennonite Educational Institute. A number of educators, denominational leaders and missionaries have roots in Clearbrook MB Church.
