In Fall 2007 they started the Quest Christian Community, which met on Sunday evenings in the home of Troy and Tammy Watson. In February 2008 they began meeting in the Grace Mennonite Church in St. Catharines, but in July moved to the the Multi-Cultural Center downtown St. Catharines. Initially between 12 and 20 adults regularly attended.

In April 2009 Quest began renting, renovating and meeting at 145 King Street in St. Catharines. It has been used for the Quest Community and in January 2010 also opened as an art house for the downtown city area featuring an art gallery, a location for alternative films and a small concert venue under the name "145" (onefortyfive). This project ended in 2012 due to the lack financial resources. The group then began to meet at St. Thomas’ Anglican Church on Ontario Street in St. Catharines.
