Church Anniversary.

Anniversary services in connection with St. Paul's Methodist Church, Reet street, were hold on Sunday last, the Rev. Air Mcßean preaching in the morning and The Rev. A. Mitchell in the evening. On Wednesday night the annual tea meeting took place in the schoolroom, where the ladies of the church had a bountiful recast in readiness for their guests. After this had received attention the company adjourned to the church, where a concert programme was carried out. It was preceded by a short address by the Rev. Air Mitchell, who spoke hopefully of the position of the circuit. Songs were given by Airs Hensley , and Alisses Stead and Frapwell, and Alessrs Gillies, Mclntosh and Taylor, and Aliss Ruth Prior recited that old favourite, “Trouble in the Amen Corner,” with good effect. Mr Trist Seared and Aliss Gladys Searell contributed a pianoforte duet, which was encored. Air W. Ferguson treated the audience to a well-played violin solo. Alusically, the feature of the evening was Air Trist Searell’s organ selection, “The Storm”—a concert in itself. The choir gave two anthems. Mr J. J. Wesn-ey.moved a comprehensive vote of thanks to all who had furthered the success of the annual gathering. They had had two splen-did-sermons on Sunday, a good tea mooting, and after that a fine concert. Air C. W. Brown seconded the motion, which was carried by acclamation. The Rev. Mr Mitchell also made special mention of the work of Miss M. Hawke, who had seen to the floral decoration of the pulpit.
