The final chapter shows that by the mid-century the missionary societies were serving the colonial Churches rather than the home Church’s agenda. The anniversary sermons declined in status and then (with the SPG and SPCK) ceased publication altogether, the anniversary events becoming merely ceremonial showcases. By contrast, the pulpit in Australia is shown exercising a central practical role in preaching the Church’s mission. In India the work of the new churches was disturbed by the ‘Indian Mutiny’ much less than was morale at home, while visits by colonial clergy began to be keynotes for the maintenance of missionary society activity less at national than diocesan and local level, where support of overseas missions continued to grow as an expression of faith.
