Efforts to organise a Presbyterian Church in Caulfield are meeting with success. The Sunday evening services are held in the Courtroom, Caulfield Town Hall, and are conducted by the Rev. A. Hardie. Tenders have been called for the building of a church hall and kindergarten room in Neerim road. The site at the corner of Bambra road and Neerim road is reserved for the church.

Success has attended the opening of a church hall in Neerim road, Caulfield, by the Presbyterian Church. The number of Sunday school scholars on the roll is 106, and the number of teachers and helpers 1?. Many gifts of furnishings have been received from members of the congregation. The first anniversary of the opening of the church hall will be celebrated on Sunday, when the preachers will be the Revs. R. Nairn and D. Macrae Stewart.
