Church Dedications

Shields Gazette and Slapping Telegraph
March 23, 1968

Although services have been held regularly in First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Hepscott Terrace, South Shields, since 1953, the church has not yet been dedicated.

A rule of the Christian Scientists is that their churches must not be dedicated until they are free from debt. Now that members have finished paying for the building and grounds, the dedication service can go ahead on Sunday.
