Milton is a city on the edge of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) about 40 kms from Downtown Toronto on Highway 401. It is a fast-growing community. From 2001-2011 it was Canada’s fastest growing municipality. Much of the growth is extending into suburbs around old Milton. Milton is part of the Halton Region.
According to Salatomatic there are 3 Mosques in Milton, 4 halal restaurants and 1 Islamic school.
According to Outreach Canada Research there are 29 churches in Milton.
That the many newcomers moving into Milton would receive a warm welcome by area churches and that would open the door to relationships with local Christians.
Milton Area Christian Churches Working Together is a network focused on welcoming newcomers. Pray that many would be reached through their efforts.
Many Muslims are settling into the busyness of Canadian life, community, jobs, raising children, trying to get ahead in life. Pray that in the midst of this busyness they would have opportunities to hear the gospel.
Pray for openness, desire and enthusiasm in the churches of Milton to reach out to Muslims with love and care.
