The Altona Christian-Missionary Church, located four miles (6.5 km) east of Stouffville on the South side of Uxbridge-Pickering Townline near 2nd Concession. The congregation began in 1872 and erected a building 1875. The congregation began as a division from the Dickson Hill congregation, due to the distance that some members had to travel. The congregation affiliated with the Mennonite Brethren in Christ in 1883 and continued with the Missionary Church in later years. The pastor in 1986 was V. Klaue.

Early leaders included Daniel Barkey, Menno Nighswander and Abraham Reesor. The congregation has always been English-speaking.
