Among the Churches

Current Notes

St. Louis Star

St. Louis, Mo. (Sixth Church).—North St. Louis is soon to have one of the most modern church edifices in the city. The building is to be erected by the congregation of Sixth Church of Christ, Scientist, at a cost of about two hundred thousand dollars. The church will be situated on Natural Bridge Road, opposite Fairground Park. The architects describe the edifice as follows:—

"The general dimensions of the building will be one hundred and six by one hundred and thirty feet, with a height of sixty-four feet. The architecture will be classic, with Ionic columns. The interior will be classic, brick, with Bedford stone or terra cotta trimmings and granite steps. The interior will have a spacious foyer with a large fireplace. Four pairs of wide stairs will lead up to the main auditorium, enabling the building to be emptied quickly without causing congestion. The auditorium will have a seating capacity of approximately one thousand, while the separate Sunday school room on the ground floor will accommodate between six hundred and seven hundred pupils. The artificial lighting of the auditorium will be accomplished by an indirect cornice cove system. A very complete system of mechanical ventilation will be installed. The building has been designed from an economical standpoint, not only in general arrangement and plan as a whole, but also in details of construction. Beauty in design has been accomplished through simplicity."
