AMONG THE CHURCHES
A Christian Science society was organized in Santa Barbara in November, 1892. This society first met in the home of one of its members, but in 1895 it was necessary to procure larger quarters and Channel City Hall was rented until 1897, when Music hall on Anapamu street was secured. This room was used until 1900, when the society having been incorporated as a church the building formerly used by the Unitarian society, at State and Victoria streets, was purchased, which was occupied until 1906, when it was remodeled so as to seat about two hundred. This building proved sufficient until the summer of 1910, when a large lot was purchased at the corner of Anacapa and Micheltorena streets, the church building removed thereto and enlarged to its present proportions. In its new location, the edifice of First Church of Christ, Scientist, has been occupied since Thankgiving day, 1910. The auditorium is a pleasant, well-lighted room and has a seating capacity of over three hundred, which it is possible to increase to about four hundred by the addition of more chairs.—Santa Barbara Press.
The new rooms of the Christian Science society, Swansea, were opened on Sunday, March 5. The site on which they are built became the freehold property of the society about a year ago. It is prominently situated on a main road in one of the best parts of the town, and sufficient land remains on which to build a church when needed. The design of the building is Georgian in character, and compares favorably with the best architecture of the town. The service room is capable of seating three hundred people.
