MACCWT is an acronym for Milton Area Christian Churches Working Together, which is a registered Canadian charity. Our members are churches in Milton, and our primary purpose is to promote awareness of Christian values and practices within the larger community of Milton. Only churches can be members of MACCWT, and for 2012–2013 there are 19 local churches as members (see complete list below).
Our initiatives include:
ANNUAL "ON THE WAY TO BETHLEHEM" NATIVITY PAGEANT is a three-evening live depiction of the Christmas story, held over the first weekend of Advent, Friday through Sunday from 6:30–8:30 pm each evening, at Country Heritage Park. The pageant attracts approximately 5,000 visitors each year and has been a feature of the Christmas season in Milton since 2002. For more information please visit www.onthewaytobethlehem.ca
CHRISTMAS DINNER FOR FOOD BANK PATRONS is another community outreach hosted by Milton Christian Churches, with food donated and volunteers from many of our member churches.
