TitleCFR Main - Publications Bureau
Date1935-c.1988
DescriptionThe Publications Bureau was set up following resolutions passed at the 13th meeting of the Council on 23 Oct. 1935 to enable individuals to pass on to clergy overseas their copies of the Church Times and journals such as Theology, or give gift subscriptions to periodicals or the SCM Religious Book Club as a way of disseminating news about the Church of England and topical theological discussions. In addition, at the same meeting, SPCK was to be asked to make grants of English theological works to foreign chaplains who, in turn, were to be approached to set up local theological libraries, and that a panel of lecturers be formed. Recipients were encouraged to keep in touch with the senders of periodicals and in some cases, willing donors kept up the supply of books and journals for twenty or thirty years. The Bureau seems to have ceased its activities in about 1988.
