After his return to Britain in 1855 he raised over £2500 towards the establishment of a college at Amoy. Johnston next accepted an invitation in July 1858 to work at St. James's Free Church in Glasgow, and for the rest of his career he combined his pastoral duties with activity on behalf of Christian missions, serving for some time as secretary to the Missionary Association of Scotland. He died on 16 October 1905 at St. Leonards, Sussex.)
