|Church Congress, Nottingham,
Church Defence Institution
4 Weekday Cross
15th January, 1872.
To The Secretary,
Bromley House Library.
I am directed to forward you two copies of the Church Congress Report as a memento of the kind courtesy shewn by your Society to the Members of Congress.
Yours very truly,

|The original of this letter is
fixed inside the minute book covering 1871.
|A report in The Church Magazine gives a clear indication of the aims of this event.|
Congress: what is it? It is not a piece of Church
organisation; it is not a platform for societies; it is not a
review-day of the Church’s forces; it is no substitute for her
Convocations and Conference system; it is not a council or committee in
which divisions are taken, votes recorded, and decisions made; it is
not a mere debating society.
What is it then? It is a voluntary gathering of churchmen brought together from year to year, constrained by love for Mother Church and a zealous desire to promote her greater efficiency, to consider Church questions of present interest, especially in their bearing upon the life of the world.
|The discussions of the selected subjects are opened by picked men; either expert in the field of knowledge under consideration, or highly capable teachers and leaders. These discussions direct, deepen and widen men’s thoughts; they cultivate a more intelligent grasp of the great realities of the Church’s life and work; they stimulate churchmen to undertake a fuller service for Christ and fellow-man; they encourage the wearied and disappointed worker by the knowledge of the Church’s strength and unquestioned advance; they sometimes reveal new regions of Christian toil, new opportunities of service and sacrifice, which are readily embraced.|
