R.R. 2, 3167 Walker Rd., Harrow, ON, N0R 1G0. (519) 738-2148. Located Lot 9, Concession 3, Colchester South Township. Pastor Greg Yantzi served in 2002 as congregational leader. In 1965 there were 59 members; in 1975, 47; in 1985, 70; in 1995, 56; in 2000, 81. The congregation affiliated with the Conference of United Mennonite Churches in Ontario (1953-1988), the Conference of Mennonites in Canada / Mennonite Church Canada (1953-), the General Conference Mennonite Church (1953-1999) and Mennonite Church Eastern Canada (1988-). The language of worship is English; language transition from German occurred in the 1960s.

The congregation began services ca. 1929, and formally organized in 1953. The first building was occupied in 1951 with a subsequent building program in 1996. Gerhard Papke is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through a division from the Leamington United Mennonite church due to distance of travel for Harrow area members. In the 1980s the congregation maintained a small amount of German in services, mostly songs.
