Conference of British Missionary Societies. Conference of British Missionary Societies : archives, 1912-1970. Microfilm. Leiden : IDC Microform Publishers, 1987. 4,990 fiche.
Yale Divinity Library, Special Collections: Fiche RG93
Arranged in five sections: Standing Committee, Home Council, Area Files, Literature and Medical, and Cooperative Work. The Conference of British Missionary Societies was founded in 1912 as a direct result of the 1910 World Missionary Conference at Edinburgh, Scotland. The World Conference had established a Continuation Committee whose goal was to stimulate the foundation of national cooperative councils for mission. The CBMS, however, was not itself a missionary society. It served an important function for cooperation between missionary organizations at home and abroad. The collection documents the activities of the CBMS for the period 1912-1954. Material pertaining to the Standing Committee includes annual reports, issues of the Edinburgh House Bulletin and triennial policy groups devoted to the study of particular aspects of missionary purpose and policy. The Home Council material documents the education for mission of British churches, recruiting and training of missionaries. Area files contain correspondence with national Christian councils in Africa, the Near and Middle East, the West Indies and Asia. The Literature and Medical Sections provide information on the provision of literature overseas and on the financing and staffing of missionary medical institutions. Material on cooperative work reflects the CBMS' international and national contacts with other missionary bodies. The collection is important for studying the cooperation between missionary organizations and the religious, social and political climate in Britain and many other nations.
