The Calgary Inter-Mennonite congregation began services and formally organized in 1976. The congregation originated through separation from Highland Mennonite Brethren Church. It was then a member of the the Alberta Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches and the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. In 1990, the congregation became inter-Mennonite by extending its conference membership to include Conference of Mennonites in Alberta and the Northwest Mennonite Conference. In 1996 the congregation also joined the Conference of Mennonites in Canada.

On 20 March 1999 the congregation's membership in the Mennonite Brethren conferences was revoked because Calgary Inter-Mennonite had joined the Supportive Congregations Network in 1997. The Supporting Congregations Network consists of  Mennonite, General Conference Mennonite and Church of the Brethren congregations which welcome gay, lesbian and bisexual members. In 2000 Calgary Inter-Mennonite withdrew from the Conference of Mennonites in Alberta in order to avoid division within the conference. It's relationship with the remaining conferences also ended within a short time. Calgary Inter-Mennonite functions as an independent Mennonite congregation.

Pastors Anneli Braul and Brenda Dyck served in 2000 as congregational leaders. In 1985 there were 58 members; in 1995, 84; in 2000 96. In 2009 the pastor was Brenda Dyck; at that time no formal membership records were maintained; there is a commitment to the faith community at its annual Celebration of Community.
