Second Church of Christ, Scientist, London, held the first service in its new church home on Sunday, April 23. The trustees of the church purchased in February last a plot of land in Palace Gardens Terrace, Notting Hill Gate, W., comprising an area of about ten thousand square feet. At present there are on this site three residential houses and a commodious church building capable of seating nine hundred and fifty people, with a large Sunday school room, readers' room, etc., attached. The whole is very well adapted for holding our services until such time as our new church building is erected on the site. The situation is in a quiet residential neighborhood in one of the best parts of London, close to the parks and within a few minutes of all the principal means of communication with the various parts of London. We are deeply grateful for the way in which our need of a church building has been met, and for the many wonderful ways in which the purpose of Mind in human as well as in spiritual affairs is being daily revealed to us.—Correspondence.

Although the breaking of the ground for the new Christian Science church has been delayed considerably, it is expected that the work will be started within a short time. The property at East avenue and Prince street was purchased several months ago, pursuant to a plan to erect an edifice that will compare favorably with the best churches in the city. For several years there were two Christian Science churches in this city, but in December, 1908, the congregation of the church in South Fitzhugh street decided to combine with the church at Alexander and Cobb streets. The latter has a seating capacity of six hundred, and it is expected that it will suffice for the needs of the congregation until the new church is finished.—Democrat Chronicle.
