The Trinity Mennonite congregation at Mather, MB began services and formally organized in 1976. The first building was occupied in 1979. Clarence Neufeld is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through division from Mather Mennonite due to conflict and leadership questions.

Initially, the congregation shared a church building with the United Church at Mather and they continue to have occasional joint services.
