Administrative/Biographical history: The London Missionary Society was founded in 1795 during an evangelical revival as a non-denominational body dedicated to spreading the Christian faith around the world. It was largely associated with the Congregationalist movement in England and the United States. In Wales, its activities were coordinated by its Welsh Council. In 1966, the LMS merged with the Commonwealth Missionary Society to form the Congregational Council for World Mission (CCWM), which in turn was restructured to create the Council for World Mission in 1977.
