The Church Missionary Society for Africa and the Middle East was formed as part of the Anglican church to complement the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel. Its primary concentration was on using non-ordained missionaries to bring the gospel to the "Heathens" of Africa and the East. Reel 1 of Collection 147 contains a history of the Society and its By-laws.
The West Indies Missions were intended primarily for the proselytization of slaves in the British colonies.
