Among the Churches

Current Notes

Poole and Best Dorset Herald

Poole, Dorset, England (First Church).—Evidence of the growth of Christian Science in Parkstone was afforded on Sunday, January 8, 1939, when First Church of Christ, Scientist, Poole, dedicated its permanent building.

It is a rule that a Christian Science church shall be formally dedicated only when it is entirely free from debt. This debt having been fully cleared, the occasion was a day of great rejoicing and gratitude on the part of the members for blessings received through Christian Science. The rejoicing was shared by the many friends attending the services, some of whom came from long distances. In order to accommodate all who wished to attend the dedication, three services were held. The services followed the form used every Sunday, with the addition of a brief history of the growth of the church in the district. This also served as a dedicatory address, which was read by the First Reader. The subject of the Lesson-Sermon from the Christian Science Quarterly was "Sacrament."
