West Hills Fellowship, 2004

The West Hills Mennonite Fellowship in Baden, Ontario, Canada began services in 1991 and formally organized in 1994. The congregation originated through outreach by a group of interested individuals primarily from the Steinmann Mennonite Church.

Originally the group met in the former Baden Mennonite Church, until that building burned in April 2000. After using temporary facilities, the congregation then moved to a countryside location in North Easthope Township of Perth County, and purchased the church building in 2003 from a United Church of Canada congregation for the sum of ten dollars plus legal costs.

In late 2013, in a desire to return to the Baden community, the congregation purchased a former commercial property in the town of Baden, with plans to transfer the countryside property to the non-denominational Appletree Community Church in early 2015. Renovation of the Baden property began in 2014 with plans to complete the project in 2015. West Hills will share space with the St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church at 60 Mill Street in Baden during the period between transferring the countryside property and completion of the renovation.

In 2014 there were 36 members with an additional 28 children high school age and younger. The congregation has been affiliated with Mennonite Church Eastern Canada and Mennonite Church Canada.
