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
"Edited by Allan R. Brockway and J. Paul Rajashekar".
"The new religious movements 'may be constructive or destructive, can lead to a new freedom or new enslavement, can depersonalize individuals or reveal their fuller human potential, can depend on religious faith or on new rituals equivalent to magic and the occult, can reclaim the drug addict and encourage virtuous lives or exhibit immoral and demonic features'. But if we are to follow the way of Jesus, that of 'barrier-breaking and not barrier-building', these movements must challenge us to dialogue -- a dialogue that does not exclude criticism. These and related issues were discussed at a consultation jointly sponsored by the World Council of Churches and the Lutheran World Federation. The book brings together the papers presented at the consultation and its findings and recommendations". -- back cover.
