The object of the meeting was to decide what new work the Association should undertake, * The last work undertaken by the Association was the providing of the altar, a great improvement in the church. A number of suggestions were discussed, including tbe completion of the woodwork screening by tbe vestry door, the putting in of a coloured window over the gallery, the placing: of a memorial window to Mr and Mrs Lucaa opposite tbe Bowe window, the repairing of the motor in connection with the organ, and the completion of the benching iv tbe church, and doing away with the chairs None of these schemes were finally adopted. •

The continual hissing of the water is a greet drawback to the rervice, and cannot be avoided till the motor is taken out and imbedded in a concrete cellar which would deaden the sound. This suggestion was submitted to the Vesty;
