The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1910
All through the long vacation Mr. Sprott, with his usual kindness, has been giving weekly addresses to Union members. This year he dealt with "The Leading Characteristics of the Four Gospels," dealing with authorship, style and matter of each, and emphasising the chief teaching of each. The Union desires to thank Mr. Sprott most heartily for his kindness in giving us this time, despite the fact that he was so busy with his parish work.
The Summer Conference of the New Zealand Student Christian Union was held this year at Marton, from Dec. page 63 30th until Jan. 5th. The number of delegates from Victoria College was nineteen. Marton proved an ideal Conference site, and the Conference was in every way a great success. Waimate is the probable site of the next Conference, which will be held well before Christmas, or late in January.
Sunday, February 22nd was observed as the universal day of prayer for students. The churches in and around Wellington were invited by circular to observe this day of prayer for the student movement, and a meeting was held in St. John's Bible Class room after church in the evening. The Rev. Blackburne, vicar of Kilbirnie, gave an address on "Prayer," and the Rev. Standage, of Kelburne Presbyterian Church, spoke on "Practical Aspects of Prayer."
