A group of Chin Christian in Ottawa began to meet in December 2003 as the Ottawa Chin Believers Fellowship. It met in homes and included persons from a variety of denominational backgrounds. In June 2011 it became known as the Chin Christian Church, in recognition of its denominational variety. Through the influence of Pastor Jehu Lian, pastor of the Chin Christian Church in Kitchener, they became aware of Mennonites and explored a relationship with Mennonite Church Eastern Canada (MCEC).
In April 2012 the Chin Christian Church was accepted as an emerging congregation in MCEC. The worshiping community in the Ottawa Chin congregation was about 70 persons in 2012, including children. The congregational chair in 2012 was Pu No Kio Bik.
