As the British expanded their colonial system, sPCK assumed a support role for the missionaries sent out by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts and the Church Missionary Society, by raising funds for church buildings, schools, and theological training colleges.

Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. The editor of New Advent is Kevin Knight. In the meanwhile we came on foot to a certain place where the mountains, through which we were journeying, opened out and formed an infinitely great valley, quite flat and extraordinarily beautiful, and across the valley appeared Sinai, the holy mountain of God. Another branch of the society's activity is the hospital work.

One aspect of this missionary work which calls for special notice is the translation of the Bible into foreign languages. Bray's personal experience of the condition of those members of the Church of England who were scattered through what are now the Northern and Southern States of the Union convinced him that the work to be done was so gigantic that it called for a special societyand therefore, inthe "Society for the Propagation of the Gospel" was founded. Now, the SPCK's publishing team produces around 80 titles per year, for audiences from a wide range of Christian traditions and none. Up until the American Revolution, SPCK shipped books to the American colonies to nurture the substantial network of libraries they had created, but even at the start its concern extended to other parts of the world; init sent a printing press and a printer to Tranquebar in east India to support the work of the pioneering Danish-Halle Mission. The International Study Guide series were provided, free of charge, to theological training colleges across the world.
