The North Leamington United Mennonite congregation began services in 1954, and formally organized in 1980. The first building was occupied in 1954. J. C. Neufeld and N. N. Driedger are considered the founding leaders of the group. The congregation was established by Essex County (Leamington) United Mennonite to accommodate its growing membership. The two churches operated under one organization until 1981 when they became autonomous. Services have been in English only since 1985.
