Christian Missions to the Chinese in Victoria, Australia-Source Documents-The Interdenominational Era, 1854-1860

Welch, Ian Hamilton


The mid-19th century Australian gold rushes produced a boom in Chinese immigration into the Colony of Victoria. A relatively small cohort of Protestant Christians saw an opportunity for evangelisation of the Chinese in Australia by an interdenominational Victoria Chinese Mission. Founded in 1855, the VCM failed financially in 1858 and was replaced by denominationally-based missions.
