From the February 1895 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The first services were held in the new church edifice of the Mother Church on Sunday December 30th, 1894. The dedication services having been fixed for January sixth, which was the regular communion day, it was thought best to hold the communion services at the former date, as it would have been impracticable to read the long list of applicants at each repetition of the services.

At these services the auditorium was filled to overflowing, many being obliged to stand in the doorways and vestibule.

The services opened with hymn number 178, "Saw ye my Saviour? Heard ye the glad sound? " written by our Leader. Mark xiv. 12-26, was read as the Scripture lesson, and paragraphs one, two and three of page 340, and one and two of page 348, as the lesson from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." This was followed with the silent prayer and the audible repetition of the Lord's Prayer, with the spiritual interpretation.
