Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England (First Church).—Having been freed from debt, First Church of Christ, Scientist, Stoke-on-Trent, was dedicated on Sunday, September 28, 1941, when two special services were held.

Christian Science Society, Stoke-on-Trent, was recognized by The Mother Church in Boston, Massachusetts, in October, 1916. The society's first lecture was given in 1921. A building committee was established about 1922, and plans and hopes for the building of a church were discussed and worked upon.

The next three years saw the culmination of the plans and arrangements for the church on Park Avenue, and the gradual rising of its walls. In February, 1926, the fact was recorded of the acceptance of the society as First Church of Christ, Scientist, Stoke-on-Trent. The new church was opened on April 28, 1926. This was the first Christian Science church building in Staffordshire, though services were also being carried on at the time in Stafford, West Bromwich, and Wolverhampton.
