The Eastview Community Church was formed in 1990 as an outgrowth of the River East MB Church. It desired to be a community church in order to reach out to the people of Winnipeg, Manitoba. They began in rental facilities with 150 people. In 1995, they built a meeting place. They have two styles of services: one for non-churched people, which includes drama, contemporary music, and practical messages; and the other for churched people emphasizing in-depth Biblical teaching.
In 1992, the membership was 156; in 2000, it was 327; and in 2010, it was 490.
The leaders of the congregation include Garth Klassen (1990–1992), Adam Wiggins (1993–1998), Lorne Pearson (1999–2007), Delbert Enns (2008–2020), John F.K. Neufeld (2021– ).
The language of worship is English.
