The congregation was founded as a Methodist Church in 1812; the building was erected in 1867. In 1925, this church became a part of the United Church of Canada. Over the course of its history, this congregation helped establish over 20 churches and/or chapels in the Oakville area.

There is a long and storied history of God being worshiped in this community, and there is a long tradition of being a presence for Christ and for the Holy Spirit in Oakville.
