Grace Mennonite Church began services in 1955, and formally organized in 1960. The first building was occupied in 1955, with a subsequent building addition in 1968. Paul I. Dyck is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through urbanization from rural Saskatchewan and outreach by the conferences. The language of worship is English; the transition from German occurred in the 1950s.

In 1988 the congregation began a Chinese ministry when the congregation hired Pat Houmphan as Asian pastor. In 1997 Magdalena Widjaja was ordained as Chinese pastor to the Grace Mennonite Chinese Fellowship portion of the congregation.

In 1997 there were also Laotian and Hispanic fellowships within the congregation.

Grace Mennonite was originally known as Regina Mennonite Conference Mission and also as Victoria Avenue Mennonite Church.
