Whats up with Steinbach
Many people outside Steinbach have a perception of Steinbach with regards to our religious beliefs. One thing you will definitely notice about Steinbach is the number churches. In a city of 11000 people, 28-30 churches does seem to be an excessive amount. I grew up in Aylmer, Ont , approx. 2 hours south of Toronto and 25 mins south of London, Ont. Coming from such a populous area to a small city as Steinbach is like entering into the twilight zone. People are different, the whole community mind set takes time to get use to. Steinbach still has a very strong Mennonite present, which can be seen in the amount of churches and also the fact that our major stores are closed on Sunday. Never the less, we are a growing community and are seeing a lot of new faces and people from different backgrounds. Steinbach is definitely a great community to be apart of and it is very exciting to see all the changes to come.
