The first Mennonite worship services in Prince Albert were organized in 1942. The congregation was served by first by leaders from the Hoffnungsfelder Gemeinde and then by the General Conference Home Mission Board in 1946. Rev. Regier and Isaac Epp are considered the founding leaders of the group. The congregation originated through urbanization and outreach by the Saskatchewan Conference. During these years the church met in homes. In 1951 they began using rented facilities for a meeting house, and in 1955 they completed their own meeting house. It became an independent congregation in 1961. A larger meeting house was completed in 1973.

Grace Mennonite Church held its final service on 31 January 2022. The congregation decided to gift the property to Parkland Restorative Justice (PRJ), a local non-profit charity providing services to recently-incarcerated persons.
