London Missionary Society
The Church Missionary Society was founded in London, England in 1799.
The original name given to this society was The Society for Missions in Africa and the East.
This Society was founded by clergy from the Church of England.
In 1812 it was renamed the Church Missionary Society.
Although the Society only sent out 5 missionaries to work with non-Christians in its first 10 years,
it gradually gained support and the work of the Society expanded. Mission works include the installation of water pumps,
such as this one in rural Africa.
Associated members of the Church Missionary Society are found in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
Those members in Canada have become members of the Anglican Church.
