On return to U.K. he became the first Henry Martyn Lecturer in Mission Studies and founding director of the Henry Martyn Centre, Cambridge, overseeing the removal of the Library to Westminster College. This collection contains his letters from Kenya, Cambridge, and other places, as well as his general writings and sermons and papers related to the work of the Henry Martyn Trust and the establishment of the Henry Martyn Centre in the 1990s.
