The Mount Royal congregation in Saskatoon began services in 1963, and formally organized in 1965. The first building was occupied in 1963, with a subsequent building program in 1988. Peter G. Sawatzky is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through outreach by Mayfair Mennonite Church.

The congregation has been affiliated with Mennonite Church Saskatchewan (1965-), the Conference of Mennonites in Canada / Mennonite Church Saskatchewan (1965-) and the General Conference Mennonite Church (1965-1999). The language of worship is English; the transition from German occurred in the 1960s.
