At this stage our Church was growing and had over 500 families and 22 organisations working vigorously in the neighbourhood.
The reason that the magazine was printed was "to keep our large congregation in touch with our work and to help to more fully organise our members for Christian service." "We believe there is a great work for out church to do. We have well-equipped buildings, a fine position on the "hill-head" and all around the homes of the people.

A notice in this magazine puts a decline in the number attending Sabbath-school down to a lack of footwear and warm clothing, because the weather had been so wintry.Parcels were to be given to Mr. Wasson.
