It is argued that around 1818 the pace of missionary activity quickened. The SPG, able now to respond to successive anniversary preachers’ calls for missions to India, gained political recognition for the deployment of funds to primary evangelism, beyond existing anglophone communities, and began to support pre-service training realistically. The SPCK began to develop a corresponding theology of Christian empire, while in India Bishop Middleton laid the doctrinal, rhetorical, and infrastructural basis of the Church in India. The CMS moved somewhat from its original Calvinism and converged sharply with the older Societies, demonstrated particularly by the preaching of the future Primate, John Bird Sumner and by the organization of SPG local fund-raising through district committees in imitation of the CMS.
