The congregation began services ca. 1929, and formally organized in 1953. The first building was occupied in 1951 with a subsequent building program in 1996. Gerhard Papke is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through a division from the Leamington United Mennonite church due to distance of travel for Harrow area members.

The language of worship is English; language transition from German occurred in the 1960s. In the 1980s the congregation maintained a small amount of German in services, mostly songs.

The church was initially known as Harrow United Mennonite Church.
