This "preaching appointment" met in a schoolhouse several kilometers east of Clachen, Elgin County, Ontario. The appointment was first listed in the Mennonite Conference of Ontario Calendar of Appointments in 1874 as a monthly meeting. Some time later, services were held every two weeks. In 1880 Aldboro alternated with Mosa in the Calendar.

Henry McKay was ordained as a minister for the Aldboro/Mosa communities in 1874 and Peter King (Koenig) was ordained as deacon. Communion services continued in the community for over 25 years.
