Church Missionary Society Archive is a repository of source materials on the work of the Church Missionary Society, founded in 1799 as an Anglican evangelical movement and still active today. It includes records of both the CMS and the many other missionary societies which have become associated or amalgamated with it over its lifetime.
- Central records of the CMS and papers of key individuals associated with it
- Records of the the Loochoo Naval Mission (1843-1864), the first recorded Anglican and Protestant mission in Japan
- Archive of the Society for Promoting Female Education in China, India and the East
- Records of the Church of England Zenana Missionary Society
Church Missionary Society Periodicals encompasses publications from the CMS, the Church of England Zenana Missionary Society and the latterly integrated South American Missionary Society. Documenting missionary work from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century, the periodicals include news, journals and reports offering a unique perspective on global history and cultural encounters.
