The Keila congregation has grown out of the ministry of the Russian speaking part of the Tallinn UMC. On 13 August 1993 Viktor Batšinski was appointed local pastor and he has served the church since its establishment.

The first public worship service was held on 24 April 1993 in the rooms of the local construction design bureau at 28a Paldiski Road. Today the Keila congrega­tion meets in new rooms at 5, Põllu Street.

The connecting congregation of the Keila church is the Peoria First United Methodist Church in Illinois.
