“There are now 136 different Services available, each one complete with Hymns and Prayers and a Printed Address.

The last two Courses to be published: 'God, the World and Ourselves,' and 'Christianity in this Century,' bear particularly on the problems of to-day. They deal with fundamental subjects and are intended to meet and to answer modern questionings.

Through its impressive appeal to the eye, as well as to the ear, it is felt that the Lantern Service has a unique power.

All the best of our vast collection of slides is laid under contribution in illustrating the sets, and no expense or care will ever be spared in their production. Only the best is good enough!

Most of the Clergy and Mission Workers already know of these Lantern Services, and have proved for themselves their widespread usefulness in religious work, but we will send full details to any inquirers, or copies of the addresses for perusal so that the helpful nature of the Services may be more easily judged.”
