Copper Belt [Copperbelt]: Correspondence: British Committee Minutes

Scope and Content

Minutes of the United Missions in the Copper Belt, British Committee, Feb 1946-Sep 1951.

Administrative / Biographical History

In the early years, work of the missions in the industrial development of the Copperbelt was on a united basis. A report produced by the International Missionary Council in 1933, entitled 'Modern Industry and the African' led amongst other things to the formation of the United Missions in the Copperbelt (UMCB), in which the Church of Scotland, the Methodist Missionary Society (MMS), the London Missionary Society (LMS), the Universities' Mission to Central Africa (UMCA) and the United Society for Christian Literature (USCL) became partners. The UMCB had a London Committee consisting of representatives of the participating missions, responsible for planning its general policy and caring for the interests of cooperative work. The British Committee was a sub-committee of the International Missionary Council.
