Anglican and American Episcopalian missionaries went to China in the early nineteenth century, following Western political and commercial expansion to Asia, and all over the world. Somewhat later, missionaries from the United States and the various British societies entered Japan (1859) and Korea (1885). This chapter explores the efforts of British, American, and Canadian missionaries in East Asia, in the context of the broader Christian missionary developments. Anglican and episcopal work in translation, education, and evangelism laid the foundation for the establishment of the indigenous church in each country, although there were continuing tensions between missionary dominance and local aspirations. The interactions of the early missionaries and their somewhat different approaches in China, Japan, and Korea are significant. The chapter concludes with the efforts that led to the establishment of the Chung Hua Sheng Kung Hui (Holy Catholic Church of China.)

Keywords:   China, Korea, Japan, Chung Hua Sheng Kung Hui, Church Missionary Society, Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, Protestant Episcopal China Mission
