The Wildwood Mennonite congregation in Saskatoon, SK began services in 1975, and formally organized in 1976. The first building was occupied in 1980. John Kroeker is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through outreach by the Conference of Mennonites of Saskatchewan and other Saskatoon churches.

Wildwood was known as College Park Mennonite Church prior to 1980. An addition to the church building was made in 1985.

In 1985 there were 91 members; in 1995, 109; in 2000, 131. The congregation has been affiliated with the Conference of Mennonites of Saskatchewan (1977-), the Conference of Mennonites in Canada (1977-) and the General Conference Mennonite Church (1977-). The language of worship is English.

Pastor Pauline Steinmann served in 2010 as congregational leader.
