This chapter gives an account of the stabilizing of the CMS as a force in the Church of England’s religious and social mission and its relationship with existing and developing organizations within and around the Church. Pulpit and pamphlet controversies about the British and Foreign Bible Society, the National Society, and the new East India Company Charter revealed both differences of methods and the possibility of coexistence, while the CMS’s sectarianism is described as peaking in the ‘Bath controversy’, which highlighted its theologically controversial fund-raising and its readiness to breach ecclesiastical protocols. This roughly coincided with the first great popular fund-raising by the SPG (the 1819 King’s Letter) and prompted the creation of SPG/SPCK district committees.

Keywords:   British and Foreign Bible Society, National Society, East India Company Charter, ‘Bath controversy’, fund-raising, district committees
