The South Peel Markham-Waterloo Mennonite Conference congregation began services in April 1963, meeting every six to eight weeks. The congregation originated through outreach by the Markham-Waterloo Mennonite Conference. It discontinued in December 1965 because the Old Order Mennonites opposed the use of their building.

Minister Amsey Martin served in 1965 as a non-salaried congregational leader. It had been affiliated with the Markham-Waterloo Mennonite Conference (1963-65). The language of worship was English and German; the transition from German occurred in the 1940s.

The meetinghouse was located on the northeast corner of Peel Township Road 15 and Hwy. 86, 2 km west of Wallenstein.
