From its establishment at the Red River Colony to its enduring presence in Uganda, this society has tirelessly worked towards spreading God's love and compassion. In a room adorned with engravings capturing committee meetings held from 1799 to 1812, dedicated individuals gathered to strategize and plan their missionary endeavors.

Across continents, even Calcutta witnessed the impact of this society through native female schools supported by them. Engravings depict young scholars engrossed in their studies under the nurturing care provided by these educational institutions. The College of the Church Missionary Society stands tall as a testament to their dedication towards equipping future missionaries with knowledge and skills necessary for effective service. Its grandeur depicted in engravings symbolizes their commitment to excellence and preparing leaders who would carry forward their mission. Amongst notable figures associated with this esteemed society is Right Reverend Robert Bickersteth, DD - a man whose engraving exudes wisdom and grace.
