Places of Public Worship

Places of Public Worship.

Among all the different religious denominations, nearly the same life and activity appear to continue. The Wesleyan Congregation are exerting themselves with great energy to raise the requisite funds for erecting a place of worship, in room of the one destroyed by the earthquake. They have received a very munificent contribution from their brethren in Auckland, and the members and adherents of the Wesleyan Church here, are coming forward with praiseworthy liberality. They contemplate the erection of a strong, commodious, and elegant building; one that shall comprise the highest possible combination of utility, elegance, and economy. The Lord should be served with the best of our property. The Independent Congregation have prooured a site at Kumutoto, for their place of worship, and have succeeded beyond their expectations in raising the funds necessary for the erection of a suitable building. This will be a much more suitable locality than that in which their former Chapel stood, a matter of no small importance; for all other things being equal, the Church that is most conveniently situated will always be the best attended.
