The Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts (SPG) started in 1701. It functioned as the missionary society of the Church of England, even though formally it was chartered as an independent organization. Its purpose was to provide "a sufficient maintenance...for an orthodox clergy" and make "such other provision...as may be necessary for the propagation of the Gospel" in colonies belonging to England. It recruited and oversaw pastors, teachers, and catechists; in addition, it paid salaries, built churches, gave direction to the Church of England in the overseas colonies.
