The Brant Township, Bruce County, Ontario congregation began services in 1863, and discontinued when members who sought a more experiential religious experience joined to the United Brethren and to the group later known as Mennonite Brethren in Christ.

The congregation met in homes. It dissolved ca. 1875. It had been affiliated with the Mennonite Conference of Ontario from 1863-1875. The language of worship was German.
