Among the Churches

Current Notes

Manawatu Evening Standard

Palmerston North, New Zealand (First Church).—Costing twenty-two hundred pounds, the new building erected in Church Street for First Church of Christ, Scientist, has now been completed, and the opening services will be held in it tomorrow [June 11, 1933]. The edifice, which has striking architectural features, is an example of what can be done in difficult times by coöperation and trust.

Several years ago a band of Christian Science students commenced holding services in the house of one of their number. The attendance grew and a room was hired in Rangitikei Street, where services were held for a few years. About two years ago it was decided that the time was opportune to discuss a church building scheme. The congregation had, in the meantime, grown to such an extent that a larger room was procured in Broadway. Plans had been prepared and the proposal reached fruition when, at the commencement of the present year, the construction of the much-needed building was begun.
