About the end of 1903, four Christian Scientists started services in a private sitting-room. Later on, in the autumn of the following year, a small hall was rented, where services were held every Sunday morning, with a testimony meeting once a month. A reading-room was taken at 141 Bath street, in 1905, and in March, 1906, a church having been organized, services were held in a larger hall in the same building. Although leased for three years, the number of those attending increased so rapidly that at the end of two and a half years it became necessary to move into the Midhall, St. Andrew's halls, where services have been held for the last four years.

It is now a cause for rejoicing that still larger premises are required for both church and reading-room. For the former, the entire building of the Queen's Rooms has been acquired, for the Sunday and Wednesday services. These rooms, situated in a residential part of the town, are quiet and dignified, and afford ample accommodation for church and Sunday school. The new reading-room at 45 Renfield street is situated in the most central part of the city, in one of the leading thoroughfares, and is easily accessible from all parts.—Correspondence.
