Church Dedications

The Cornish Guardian

Newquay, Cornwall, England (Society).

Christian Science Society, Newquay, dedicated its church edifice on Easter Sunday at two services. Many friends and members of neighbouring churches and societies were included in the congregations.

Inerest in [forming] a Christian Science [group] in Newquay began in 1924, when meetings were held in private houses until 1929. From 1933 to 1960 premises in Wesley Hill were used, and during 1943 the [group] was granted recognition as a Christian Science Society.

During 1959 the society had to find other accommodation, and it was felt that the time had come when it should acquire its own premises. Owing to the generosity of members and friends, the present building, off Fernhill Road, Newquay, was purchased and adapted, and in March, 1960, the society entered into occupation. A Sunday School, Reading Room and lending library are included in the building.

Christian Science churches and societies are dedicated only when free from debt.—The Cornish Guardian, Newquay edition (April 18, 1963).
