Nutana Park Mennonite Church began when First Mennonite Church in Saskatoon decided in 1963 to establish a congregation in the Nutana Park area of Saskatoon. Part of the implementation of that decision was to build a meeting house in the Nutana Park area. In 1965 the meeting house was completed, and in 1966 the congregation was formally organized with 106 charter members. Jake Nickel is considered the founding leader of the group.

The language of worship is English; the transition from German occurred in the 1960s.
