CFEG is a low-power Christian television station broadcasting from Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada. The station is owned and operated by the Clearbrook Mennonite Brethren Church. The station is only available over-the-air.

The station was created mainly because many senior citizens, who make up a large portion of the church's congregation, are unable to attend services in person, thus a broadcast television station would give them the opportunity to watch those services on television.

Clearbrook Mennonite Brethren Church was granted a licence by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to operate a low-power ultra-high frequency television transmitter in the spring of 1999. After the station and its transmitter were set up and tested, CFEG went on the air for the first time in July 2000. The station's antenna is mounted on the roof of the church.

CFEG's programming consists of the church's English and German Sunday morning and evening services as well as its Wednesday morning German Bible study. Other programs which keep with the church's mission may be added in the future, although they must be locally produced, since the station is not allowed to air programs produced by other stations.

All of CFEG's operating costs are paid for by the church. As part of the conditions of its licence, the station is not permitted to air advertising.
