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.

"Harmony edition".
Includes indexes.
"The 1977 Australian Hymn Book contained mainly 'hymns'. With the reawakened interest in psalms, and with the emergence of the newer `worship songs', `Together in Song' contains a blend of hymns, psalms, songs and responses. It could be said to be international, ecumenical and contemporary. It is international in that material is drawn from no fewer than 48 countries. It is ecumenical in that it represents the liturgical insights of those churches represented on its Editorial Committee. It is contemporary in that all the material, whether old or new, is presented so that today's worshippers can use it without embarrassment or confusion". -- Foreword, p. viii.
"Together in Song" is an ecumenical hymn book which includes the participation of the Anglican Church of Australia.
