This chapter describes the mid-century beginnings of the Anglican communion’s development as a global and potentially ecumenical Church. It was underpinned by the missiology of Anthony Grant’s influential and anti-imperialist Bampton lectures. Domestically, the CMS, which continued to relate uneasily to the colonial dioceses, is seen developing greatly in administrative power, its policy-making dominated by the secretariat and voiced by lay aristocrats rather than the anniversary preachers, as previously. Statistics are provided to demonstrate that in the colonies the growth of congregations and ecclesiastical structures was less problematic and that, while developing in their distinctive ways, the SPG and CMS missionary stations were complementary.

Keywords:   Anthony Grant, Christian empire, Anglican communion, Bampton lectures, CMS, SPG, missiology, ecumenicalism
