BANKS PENINSULA PARISH.
The new lighting arrangements in the church at Le Bon's give much satisfaction, and it is now passible to read comfortably at night in all parts of the building, Afe .the close of tbe winter, too, tbe new beater has been very useful, for on frosty days the cold hangs about the chircb long after the sun has considerable power, buring what we hope is only the temporary absence of Mrs Crotr,y, Miss Elliot is acting as superintendent of the Sunday School, supported by Misses Pefcterson and Leonard". There bag been much sickness it) (bis Buy duriDg tbe winter, among the more serious cases being that; of? Mr W. Elliot, a vestryman, who, we trust, is now advancing to convalescence. In what we suppose should be called, by courtesy, doe time, it is hoped that it will be possible to give tbe pick in this portion of the parish care in visitation.
At a very few hours' notice with the kind cooperation of Mrs Simons at the local telephone exchange; a large congregation was called together at the church at Little Akaloa on Wednesday, August 11, to commend nur members of the Expeditionary Force to the koeping of God, Oscar, Ralph and Garde Waghorn will thus feel assured that they are alwayo beiug sustained by tbe prayers of tbeir Oburch. We pledged our?elveg to this. For this purpose io particular, and in general that during this great crisis we may constantly commit tbe destinies of our Empire to tbe hands of God, we hope to have a week day celebration of the Eucharist in esch week bmh in Little Akaloa and in Okain's whence Maurice Moore, John Moore and Hector Pidgeon are also going to the front.
With tbe coming of summpr and its arduous work and long hours, pt-epara tion for Confirmation in this district becomes almost an imposibility. It is still hoped that some guarantee of a permanent residence for the Vicar will be reached in time to warrant tbe beginning of classes in tbe less busy period.
The choir at Little Akaloa greatly tnis?es the guidance of Mrs Kay, who has been forbiddfD to undertake the long, steep walk to tbe church for the practices. Something may be done to remedy this loss by practice at home. — ".Church News,"
