In 1981 the church began meeting at Forest Lawn High School and the name of the church was changed to Forest Grove Evangelical Mennonite Church. In that same year the church concluded its dependence on the EMC Mission Board for financial support. In 1985 the church purchased two acres and construction was completed on a sanctuary in 1988. The name of the church was changed in that year to Abbeydale Christian Fellowship.
In February 2000 a new addition to the existing building was dedicated.
Rod Reimer, Garth Koop, Trevor Plett, Martha Burrell-Fandrich, Trevor Plett, and Shane Dell have served as Assistant and Young Life pastors.
