The Church Missionary Society Training College in Islington, north London was founded in 1820 to prepare Anglicanmissionaries of the Church Missionary Society for work overseas.

Initially the college operated out of the family home of the Revd. Edward Bickersteth, but by 1825 the college had moved to purpose-built accommodation in Upper Street, Islington with classrooms and living accommodation for students and a professional staff.[1] By 1894, the Church Missionary Society College had trained about 600 missionaries.[2]

The growth of training establishments overseas, widened university access and the start of the First World War led to the college’s closure in 1915.[3][4]
