Biographical history

From the outset, each conference of the United Church was required to have a Home Missions Committee, whose function was to facilitate communication between the presbyteries' committees and the Board of Home Missions, to deliberate and make recommendations on grants, and to provide support for other Home Missions work within the Conference. The Committee was composed of the Superintendents of Home Missions in the Conference, the conveners of presbyterial Home Missions committees, any members of the Board of Home Missions currently resident in the Conference, and eventually a representation of women. It had an annual meeting prior to the annual meeting of the Board of Home Missions, and submitted an annual report to the Conference. With the creation of the Division of Missions, the Committee was an autonomous part of the Division, and later of the Division of Mission in Canada. It continues to play an important part in mission work within the Conference, although the Board of Home Missions was dissolved in the 1970s, and the Committee is now part of the Division of Finance within the Conference.
