* means they were listed in the Ter-Jubilee Conference brochure in 1958. (Gerald Griffiths was among the first to appreciate the changing needs of overseas mission and of the 30 missionaries on the Chapel’s prayer list in 1958, 7 were in secular employment for missionary ends.106)

The first four names on the Roll of Honour which used to hang in the lounge of Charlotte Chapel (now in storage above the organ) are of missionaries who went to Serampore during the ministry of Christopher Anderson. John Mack was pastor of the Baptist church at Serampore and tutor at the College from 1821 to 1845 and later a professor. He was a graduate of Edinburgh University and studied theology under Dr. Ryland at Bristol Baptist College. He died of cholera in 1845. Thomas Swan went to Serampore as Professor of Theology in 1825 but died after only two years of service. In 1828 Miss Helen Mack went to the Serampore Mission Station but she too died after only two years there. Then in 1852 John Leechman, Ll.B., went to India and served for five years with the Serampore Mission. There were others but unfortunately their names have not been recorded.

1 Lynne Ager, who had recently qualified in opthalmics, went in January 1991 for six months to Kano Eye Hospital, Nigeria, with the Sudan Interior Mission, and a new phrase was coined – ‘short-term missionary service’. Reports in the Record every month of her six months. She married John McCurry in Mull on 22 July 1991, then reports of being at Bible School in Austria, and together they went to Ghana in June 1995 with the German Christ. Blinden. Mission for at least a year. Report from there (no longer a Chapel member) in the Record, February 1996, p.14.

2 Dr. R. Douglas Aitken, D.Sc., M.D., Ch. B., on Ter-Jubilee Missionary Roll of Honour in 1958 as having served in Palestine and then South Africa from 1928 to date. No other reference to him as a missionary has been picked up.

3 Wife of Norman. Only he is mentioned as going to the post, and she was not in the 1964 list, but then she appeared on the 1965 list and onward.

4 Son of missionary parents, Thomas and Caroline Allan (in list). ‘Medical student definitely going abroad’, (Record, 1951, p. 76.) M.B. Ch. (1952, pp.109, 178), National Service in Africa (1954, p. 11) employment here (1956, p. 68), impressions of Nigeria, written from Edinburgh (1957, p. 140), appointed senior registrar in hematology at the University College Hospital, Ibaden, Nigeria, so sailed with his wife and daughter, Bronwen, in June 1960. (1960, pp. 53, 58), not valedicted as he was going to a salaried government post, not a missionary society. Full report (1960, p. 141), in Edinburgh on holiday, dedication of Ruth (1961, p. 138), returned to Africa, (1962, p.141), home, (1966, pp. 3, 21). He told the writer that he was embarrassed at being included in the Roll of Honour boards in the Chapel, as he regarded his appointment to a hospital overseas, not a missionary role. On return to Edinburgh, he was a consultant in hematology at the Western General Hospital, 1967, and retired to Church Stretton in Herefordshire.

6 Report, January 2007. Richard is on the Associate Scheme at St Helen’s Bishopsgate in London. We are members of Charlotte Chapel, having been part of the church family during 2001–6 while working in Edinburgh (as an actuary and accountant respectively). Richard joined the Associate Scheme at St Helen’s from August 2006. The Scheme aims to help develop the next generation of servant-leaders of the church. In particular, it seeks to help us grow in Christian maturity: in theology and knowledge of the Bible; in our ability to study and teach the Bible: and in our servant-heartedness and ministry-mindedness. Training takes place in 4 ways: in the classroom, on the job as we do ministry, in practical jobs like moving furniture and administration, and through a large amount of contact with the St Helen’s staff team. My ministry area is mainly with workers in the banking sector who are part of the midweek church family, at lunchtime talks, small group Bible studies and lunchtime Christianity Explored courses. Further report, June 2007: We've had a good second term at St Helen's. A particular highlight was our mission week in February - St Helen's was transformed into a restaurant for a week of evening candlelit dinners followed by a short talk and questions to the speaker. We were able to bring guests on a couple of the evenings. We've also had the privilege of witnessing God's word at work in the lives of individuals whom we've been working with over the year. Last term training sessions included one morning a week doing exegesis of Galatians and one afternoon a week considering contemporary theological issues such as the place of Social Concern. Women's Ministry and Worship. We also had several preaching practice sessions and in addition. Rich had several opportunities to give talks at various events over last term. We enjoyed a really good Easter break skiing in Switzerland and are now well into the swing of the final term of the year. Richard is going to be staying on for the second year of the Scheme.

7 At Sidlow Baxter’s tenth anniversary in the Chapel, in October 1945, described as ‘in training’ – Record, 1945, p. 173. He had discussed future missionary service with Sidlow Baxter, but had severe asthma at the time. Baxter encouraged him to consider missionary service if and when the asthma could be controlled. It was never possible to take this further, but as his name is on the 1945 list, it is only proper to mention him here. He became a deacon and an elder and spent the remainder of his life as an active member of the Chapel. Much given to hospitality – father of Kenneth Armstrong, the name abouve his in the list.

8 Nurse. At Sidlow Baxter’s tenth anniversary in the Chapel, in October 1945, described as ‘in training’ – Record, 1945, p. 173.

9 Dr Robin Balfour and his wife, Frances, went in August 1991 for six months to Chogoria Hospital, Kenya – Record, October 1991.

10 Alexander W. Balfour and his Norwegian wife, Christina, were commissioned by the Lutheran Norwegian Missionary Society to teach English for two years (summer 1996 to summer 1998) in Longyan in Fuijan Province in China. The Mission had a long-term arrangement to supply a couple, every two years, to the school there. They attended the local church. Report in the Chapel Record, May 1999, pp. 16-18.

11 In theYPM report of April 2007 as a YPM missionary (presumably short-term) in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

12 In 1991, Steve Begarnie offered to work with Scripture Union in Dundee for a year, June 1991-June 1992, and the Young Peoples Meeting regarded him as one of ‘our missionaries’. This was a completely new concept in Chapel thinking for two reasons: (1) he was in Scotland, not overseas, and (2) it was for a year, not for life. His reports appeared in the Record, again unheard of for short-time Christian service, in 1992, March, pp. 5-7, June pp. 4-5. He was supported by the Chapel’s Home Mission Committee.

13 ‘Connected with Charlotte Chapel’ (The Scotsman, 7 December 1912), which reported his death at the age of 19, while a divinity student for the Baptist ministry at Stepney College, London, after three years at the Edinburgh Academy.

14 Hospital sister, Ceylon and Nigeria. BMS, as employee so not a Chapel missionary because employed by the Overseas Nursing Association, not by a missionary society. Kandy (government) Hospital, Ceylon, 1925, for three and a half years, welcomed back 1929, then to Nigeria, 1929, furlough in February 1931, vacation here in 1932. Back to Nigeria, then home in 1934 and married in the Chapel. Record, 1925, pp. 135, 150,166, 185; 1926, p. 134; 1929, pp. 90, 148, 154; 1931, p.44; 1932, p. 154; 1934, pp. 20, 69.

15 Serving with International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES) in France. Introduction in Online in 2006: ‘I was born in the beautiful country of Wales in 1982, something I am very proud of. I think I have probably been a Christian all my life, but the Lord has blessed me with a really wonderful Christian family and close group of friends who have encouraged, challenged and guided me through everything. I studied History of Art, Edinburgh University 2001-2005 and became a Student Link member of Charlotte the Chapel and was baptised there in Feb 2003. This year I am working for the `International Fellowship of Evangelical Students’ in Nice, France. The French national Student group (GBL) specifically requested a team to assist local students in their ministry and evangelistic efforts. Nice has a population of 400,000, very similar to Edinburgh, and a comparable student population. The first 3 months out here have been very encouraging. 4 new Bible groups have been started at all of the key university faculties. Regular evangelistic film debates and dinner events have also been established.

16 Joined the Chapel in July 1995. Christian home, parents with OMF at one time. Had completed a BD, and in 1995 was training as a nurse. In 2003, wanted to work with Wycliffe Bible Translators, but family commitments kept her at home. Accordingly, started M Th (part time) at International Christian College, Glasgow in 2003. In January 2007, sent to Afghanistan as reservist (nursing) with British army.

17 Gap-year April to August 2002 with WEC mission team at Cuernavacao, Mexico.

18 Bryce Crawford, Junior, spent the year spring 1992 to summer 1993 in Uganda, nursing with the Africa Inland Mission. Reports in the Record, June 1992. p.1, missionary, October, missionary, November, missionary; January 1993.

19 Last summer [2006] I graduated from Edinburgh University with a Masters in Fine Art. During this time I was privileged to attend the Chapel. In January after a Getting into Gear conference in Germany I moved to North Africa for 2 years. I hope to use my skills in art, to build bridges in order to share and be a resource to my colleagues. I've been living here for a month now and am settling into life. As the Women's Travelling Team (WTT), we will spend around 10 days every month travelling. Last week we completed our first trip. Our aim: to feel comfortable (as 2 single ladies) travelling around the country using Arabic, to meet locals and share, giving gifts of good literature, praying for people and places we visit some of which have no longer term workers. We follow up on the work of the men’s TT, by visiting women and families whom culturally men have little contact with. Eventually we hope to visit remote villages considered unreached, establishing contacts which can be followed up by long-termers. At home, time is spent studying Arabic, making local friends and meeting with brothers and sisters. Last week I visited a centre for disabled children and did some painting with them. There are many exciting opportunities to use art here and we're in the process of consolidating vision for the arts. In March [2007] we plan a trip to the mountains, staying with a Berber family.

20 Asked on 4 October 1888 for ordination as a missionary to South America. The elders knew so little about him that they were unable to recommend to the church to take on this responsibility. (Elders’ Minute, 4 October 1888.)
