Scarboro Missions magazine ceases publication after 99 years:

Since its inaugural publication in November 1919, Scarboro Missions magazine, produced by Scarboro Missions, has shared the journey of our missionaries as they witness to the Gospel overseas and in Canada. Today, mission is focused on all aspects of human dignity and development, the liberation of peoples, the integrity of creation, and dialogue with people of other faiths.

Through the magazine, Scarboro Missions has also asked for financial and prayerful support, and invited others to join in our service to the Gospel.

The final issue of Scarboro Missions magazine was published in September 2018 and celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Scarboro Foreign Mission Society. An overview of the 99 years of magazine history appeared in the final issue.

The Scarboro Missions Archives, with the help of the Internet Archive digital library, initiated a project to create digital copies of all Scarboro Missions magazines, formerly called China magazine, from the inaugural issue of November 1919, providing free public access to the nearly 100-year history of Scarboro Missions as told in the pages of the magazine. This resource provides a window into the Canadian Church’s prophetic response to the times and a changing world. Go to:

Throughout its 99 years of publication, the magazine presented a global vision of faith, promoting a dialogue and understanding of the faiths, cultures and struggles of the people among whom Scarboro missioners served. This unique Canadian missionary publication shared the changing face of mission throughout the past 100 years. The voices of the Asian, Latin American, African, and Caribbean churches are heard. These stories of encounter, service, transformation, and gratitude will inspire and teach for years to come.
