Administrative history: 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.

Custodial history: First accession received Mennonite Church Eastern Canada in 2016.
