The Zion Mennonite Fellowship in Elmira, Ontario began services in 1986, and formally organized in 1987. The first building was occupied in 1996. The congregation originated through outreach by the Elmira area Mennonite churches and Mennonite Conference of Ontario and Quebec.

The original membership was comprised primarily of people from Elmira Mennonite Church and Bethel Mennonite Church at Elora.

The congregation has been affiliated with Mennonite Church Eastern Canada (1988-), Mennonite Church (1988-1999) and the Conference of Mennonites in Canada / Mennonite Church Canada (1995-). The language of worship is English.
