"The 1988 General Convention of the Episcopal Church called for AIDS education in every congregation by the end of 1989 and requested that models of AIDS education be made available that 'promote abstinence or monogamy as well as candid and complete instruction regarding disease prevention measures'. I am pleased to commend 'Advising Young People about AIDS' to you and your congregation. This resource can help you and the people of your congregation respond to the AIDS crisis. It is a part of 'Youth Ministry in the Age of AIDS', an educational project of the Youth Ministries Office at the Episcopal Church Center in New York City, and directed toward the young people of our Church, their families, and the adults who minister to and with them". -- [Preface].

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.
