The Castor Evangelical Missionary congregation began services in 1906. W. Irish is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through colonization from Markham, Ontario and was first known as the Markham Mennonite Brethren in Christ Church. A stucco building, with seating capacity of 100, was dedicated 17 August 1947.

In 1906 there were 14 members; in 1948, 31; in 1958, 30 members. The congregation has been affiliated with the Mennonite Brethren in Christ (1906-1947), the United Missionary Church (1947-1975), the Missionary Church (1975-1993), and the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada (1993-). The language of worship is English. Pastor Marty Hays served in 2009 as a congregational leader.
