The British Association's website recalls: 'In the late 1800 there arrived in Patagonia, in Magallanes (Magellan) province and specially in Punta Arenas, British sailors, missionaries, scholars, farmers, engineers and tradesmen. The Bishop of Falkland Islands, in consideration of the missionary work done in the South and of how advanced the British Colony in Sourthern Chile was, decided in 1895 to send Rev. John Williams and his family to establish a congregation in Punta Arenas. This Chaplainship exists to this date.'
