|Administrative History||The North West Provinces mission was set up in 1892 when the diocese of Lucknow was formed It comprised the North West Province with its capital at Agra and the Province of Oudh (capital at Allahabad); also the Central Provinces and Rajputana. In 1902 it changed its name to United Provinces. This avoided confusion with the new North-West Frontier Province separated from the Punjab in 1900.|
When the Central Provinces and Rajputana were formed into the diocese of Nagpur in 1903 the area was designated a CMS mission [I 8 q.v.]. The remaining United Provinces of Agra and Oudh continued as a CMS mission [I 7].
