Administrative History
The Church of England Deaconess and Missionary Training House was established in 1890 as a residential school to prepare women workers for Deaconess and missionary service. In 1947 the name was changed to the Anglican Women's Training College (AWTC). Anglican women from all over Canada came to Toronto to train for work in Christian Education in parishes, medical and teaching services overseas, Indian and Eskimo Residential Schools and reserves, Bishop's Messengers in western Canada, Sunday School by Post and Radio, youth and social work. The Woman's Auxiliary recruits were sent to the AWTC for missionary training for a year or less before being sent out. This was different from the three year diploma program offered to AWTC students. In 1969, the AWTC merged with the United Church's Covenent College to become the Centre for Christian Studies using the former AWTC building on Charles Street, Toronto. In 1997, the building in Toronto was sold and a decision was made to discontinue the traditional residential program in favour of the community based program and to relocate the administrative offices to Winnipeg. In July, 1998, CCS officially moved.

Notes
"[By] L.W. Brown, Archbishop of Uganda and Rwanda-Urundi".
"Zabriskie Lectures 1964".
"These lectures were delivered in the Protestant Episcopal Seminary, Alexandria, Virginia, in April 1964 at the invitation of the Dean, the Very Reverend Jesse Trotter, and are printed in more or less the form in which I gave them". -- Foreword.
"It is my intention to speak first about the nature of Christian liturgy and then to go in the second lecture to consider what must be done to show that liturgy is relevant to our contemporary world. In the third lecture I wish to examine the Report of the Committee on the Prayer Book in the 1958 Lambeth Conference, the Report on Worship accepted by the Fourth World Conference on Faith and Order held in Montreal in July 1963, and the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy promulgated by the Vatican Ecumenical Council on 4 December 1963. I think that this examination shows a very great measure of agreement among all Christian people on the purpose and nature of the liturgy. ... In my fourth lecture I hope to show how this agreement and these convictions which are now so widely held have been embodied in an actual eucharistic rite. Here I want to explain the Liturgy for Africa, with a good many glances at the Liturgy of the Church of South Africa." -- p. 2.
Contents: Foreword -- The Nature of Liturgy -- Relevant Liturgy -- Christian Unity and Liturgy -- Two Experimental Liturgies -- Appendix A: A Liturgy for Africa.
