Annual Henry Martyn Day Lecture

Henry Martyn (18 Feb 1781 – 16 Oct 1812) forsook an academic career and became a missionary in India. He translated the New Testament into Hindustani and Persian. His commitment to world mission inspired many. On his first birth centenary in 1881 the Henry Martyn Trust, which runs CCCW, was established. An annual Henry Martyn Day Lecture is organised in and around October every year to celebrate him.
