Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Field work of the Algiers Mission Band was co-ordinated by an Executive Committee (first called the Field Committee, later General Committee), comprising initially field members of the Band. In due time and with the setting up of an Advisory Council at home in the UK, the Executive Committee and the Home Advisory Council oversaw the work in their respective spheres. The Home Advisory Council was, as its name suggests, an advisory body, responsible for managing funds in the UK, interviewing candidates, arranging deputation work and liaising with supporters and churches, but the last word rested with the Executive.
