In the late 90's a home Bible study group began to meet in the basement of the McCooeye home in North Gower. During the same period, a bereavement group was meeting at the Richmond Library. Both of these groups were under the guidance of Rev. Barb Richardson. During a time of prayer, Pastor Barb felt that they should plant a church in Richmond by joining together the two groups.
Grace Assembly had its first service in April of 2000 with Pastor Barb as their founding pastor. In the fall of 2001, Pastor Jim MacInnes came on board as an Associate pastor, and in 2002 he became the lead pastor of the church. Also in 2002, Grace Assembly became affiliated with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (PAOC) as a Developing Assembly. Under Pastor Jim's direction the church moved from the library to Unit 33 of the Richmond Plaza. Some of the important ministries of the church during that time included running the Alpha course and social outreach.
In 2006, Pastor John Spurrell became the Lead Pastor, and a year later he started a youth drop-in centre as one of the ministries of the church. In 2007, the church was considered a Sovereign Assembly by the PAOC. In 2008, under the direction of Pastor John, the church expanded into a new section of the Richmond plaza, with unit 36.
In December 2017, Grace Assembly relocated to 2394 Dwyer Hill Road. In 2019, after 13 years of faithful service, Pastor John and Vicki were called by God to a new challenge.
On March 17 2019, Pastor Dan Guther became the Lead Pastor.
