Among the Churches

Current Notes

Liverpool, England .—Owing to the steady growth of Christian Science in Liverpool, First Church of Christ, Scientist, are extending their premises in Leece street. For some time past there has been only standing-room at the Wednesday evening testimony meeting, and the Sunday services have been crowded. The premises are now being enlarged and redecorated, and when the alterations are completed the hall will hold considerably over three hundred. In connection with the church there is also a reading-room at 11 Old Postoffice place, which is open daily and is free to the public.—Liverpool Courier.

Oklahoma City, Okla.—During the year 1913 the Monitor committee and the reading-room and distribution committee, by sale and free distribution, have circulated approximately 7,864 Sentinels, 9,555 Monitors, 777 Journals, and 1,550 pamphlets. In addition to this the reading-room sold 174 copies of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," 23 of "Miscellaneous Writings," 17 of "First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany," 6 Concordances, 22 Mother Church Manuals, and 86 copies of other writings of Mrs. Eddy, besides 38 Bibles, 32 Hymnals, and 1,953 Quarterlies, making a grand total of 22,097 pieces sold and distributed.—Correspondence.

Durban, Natal, Africa.—Much has been said and written on the subject of Christian Science, but the fact remains that the interest and number of its adherents continue steadily to increase. It is a little over six years since Christian Science was introduced into this town, but it was not until March, 1910, that the Christian Science Society of Durban was formed. Since then the cause has steadily progressed. The new reading-rooms on the ground floor of Brunton's Arcade were opened today [March 2]. We are informed that these rooms will be open in the daytime as well as in the evening, and here the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and all other literature bearing on the subject, may be read or purchased.
