The Pioneer Park Christian Fellowship, originally located southwest of Berlin, Ontario began services about 1833, and formally organized in 1838. The first building was occupied in 1842; it was replaced by a brick building in 1895 with a seating capacity of 150. This building was replaced in 1981.
John Steckle is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through emigration from Pennsylvania. The congregation has also been known as Weber Mennonite or Strasburg Mennonite.
The congregation has been affiliated with the Mennonite Conference of Ontario (1842-1988), the Mennonite Church (1898), Mennonite Church Eastern Canada (1988) and the Conference of Mennonites in Canada / Mennonite Church Canada (1995-). The language of worship is English; the transition from German occurred in the 1900s.
