Description of Organisation:

The Jamaica Church Missionary Society is the recognised missionary agency of the Church in Jamaica & the Cayman Islands in the Province of the West Indies. The Society focuses on spreading the Gospel of Salvation with special relevance to human needs, as demonstrated by the life and ministry of the Incarnate Christ.

The Society was established in 1861 as a subsidiary of the Church, intended to target those sections of Jamaica's population 'Hard to reach with the means of Grace'. For many years the Mission Stations established and maintained by the Society provided the only means of reaching the masses of the population with the Christian Gospel and basic elementary education.
