The Universities Mission to Central Africa, founded in 1860, was the first mission society operated by the high church faction of the Anglican Church, and was unique among Anglican missions in that primary authority rested not with a home committee, but with a bishop in the field. The mission was founded by a coalition of groups in Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, and Dublin Universities.
