It is gratifying to record the increased attendances at the Good Friday and Easter Day Services which was manifest this year. The Three Hours' Service on Good Friday at Holy Trinity Church was conducted by the Rev. W. Morgan, vicar of St. Anne's, whose impressive and help¬ ful addresses were listened to with mani¬ fest attention. On Easter Day there were exceptionally large congregations even for Easter, and also a very large number of communicants. The circumstances this year were specially favourable, the day falling late and: the National Union of Teachers, whose conference was held on the following days, evidently brought a large proportion of consistent Church- people, a fact which we very gratefully record. * * * EASTER DECORATIONS.
