Jubilee Mennonite Church officially came into being on 1 January 1995.  It was the result of the amalgamation of two congregations: Northdale Mennonite Fellowship, a General Conference Mennonite church, and Valley Gardens Community Church, a Mennonite Brethren congregation. Both congregations had been undergoing re-evaluation, in part due to declining attendance. The newly formed congregation initially had around 80 members and decided to meet in the church built by the Northdale congregation in 1975-76. An important dynamic of the new congregation was the desire to participate in two Mennonite conferences.
