Among the Churches

Current Notes

Darlington, Durham, England.—Christian Science healing was first brought to notice in Darlington in 1899. In 1905 a few friends, imbued with the spirit of Love, met together in the house of two of the number for the purpose of holding services. It soon became evident that progress in understanding necessitated the taking of a public room, and services were held in the same year in the Temperance Institute. In January, 1906, First Church of Christ, Scientist, was organized, and the members decided to erect a suitable building to meet the further demands for growth and demonstration. In 1907 a site was purchased and plans were prepared for the erection of a place of worship. On August 4, 1908, the church was opened in North Lodge Terrace, and it is now free from debt. For all the experience, admonition, protection, and healing which have come to the members of this branch of The Mother Church, gratitude was expressed at the dedication services on December 18 last.

Omaha, Neb.—Work on the first unit of Second Church of Christ, Scientist, at Forty-first and Davenport Streets, has been completed and services were held in the Sunday school room Sunday, December 12, 1918. In January, 1915, it was decided by the members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, that a second organization was needed, so a committee was appointed to decide on the proper district in which to establish Second Church. This committee recommended the western part of the city, and accordingly those residing in that section met on the twenty-fifth of the month for the purpose of organizing Second Church. Services were at first held in Harte Hall, Dundee, and later in the Dundee Theater. A building committee was appointed January 11, 1917, and the work of church building commenced. The first unit has been erected at a cost of forty-three thousand dollars.
