The Breslau Evangelical Missionary congregation began services about 1855, and formally organized 26 April 1884. The first building was occupied at that time with a seating capacity of about 200. Solomon Eby is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through division from the Mennonite Conference of Ontario in the 1850s.

Pastor Todd Brown served in 2009 as a salaried congregational leader. In 1948 there were 82 members; in 1975, 84; in 1985, 100; in 2000, 78. The congregation has been affiliated with the Mennonite Brethren in Christ since 1883, and currently with the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada. The language of worship is English.
