Anglican Evangelical Group Movement

The Anglican Evangelical Group Movement (AEGM) began as a small, informal group of evangelicals within the Church of England with (Frederick Sumpter) Guy Warman (1872-1950), later Bishop of Manchester, as one of its founding and most influential members. Their soteriology was very Christocentric and their regional meetings concentrated on the Gospel. They disbanded in 1967. Deposited by Canon A Doyle, these records include minutes of annual general meetings (1930-1967); minutes of the Central Committee (1926-1967) and minutes of regional meetings such as the Birmingham Group (1936-1945); the Liverpool Six (1907-1911) and the South London Group (1932-1937). Central Committee files (1927-1951) are held along with the files of the Theological Committee (1947-1951). Financial records include all balance sheets (1950-1972), a ledger (1940-1962), the ordination fund account book (1927-1950) and sales of publications (1942-1950). There are membership files (1935-1966) and general correspondence (1937-1962), as well as various subject files. The records also include press cuttings, articles and copies of the AEGM's published pamphlets and copies of its bulletin, The Liberal Evangelical (intermittent 1933-1962). The second deposit of the AEGM's papers includes correspondence, a photograph and the group's flag [DEM; DEM(2)].
