Calton Conservative Mennonite Church (Aylmer, Ontario, Canada)
In early 1983 the Albert Reimer family moved to the Aylmer area to lead such an outreach. The former school at Calton, Ontario, Canada was purchased, and the first worship service was conducted on 11 September 1983. The congregation formally organized on 28 October 1984 with 15 members. Steven Martin was ordained minister in 1991 and Bishop in 1998.
In May 1993 some families left the Calton congregation and formed what was first called the East Elgin (now Corinth) congregation. The remaining Calton congregation itself withdrew from CMCO in late 1993. Both congregations became part of the Nationwide Fellowship Churches.
In 2018 the ministerial team included Bishop Steven Martin, Minister Johan Bergen, and Deacons John Harder and Jacob Martens.
The language of worship is English.
