The St. Boniface Evangelical Christian Church (L’Eglise Chretienne Evangelique de St-Boniface) began in 1982 as a church planting venture of the Manitoba Missions and Church Extension. The chartering service was held on 13 January 1985 with 35 members. It grew in the 1980s, but declined in the 1990s. It ceased to exist in 1998.
In 1999, a new congregation at the same location (231, rue Kitson, Winnipeg) was begun as the Crossroads Mennonite Brethren Church. This congregation was essentially the congregation from St. Vital that had relocated previously to this location.
Since 2000, the Manitoba Missions and Church Extension has begun another French work in St. Boniface, L’Eglise Communautaire de la Rivière Rouge at 156, rue Marion, Winnipeg. In 2013, the French congregation moved its worship services back to 231, rue Kitson.
The leaders of the congregation were Dick Neufeld (1983–1987), Henry Cullihall (1988–1990), Elsie and Henry Bergen (1992–1994), Heather and Don Boddy (1995–1997), Mario Bosio (2001–2007), Sonia Blanchette (2007–2011), Arisnel Mésidior (2013–2015), John Salumu-Kasongo (2017– ), Kevin Cleveland (2017– ).
