Grove Street Institute is an unsectarian home
mission organization, having halls built by public
subscription at a cost of £10,000, and situated on the
margin of one of the most densely populated districts
of the city. It is entirely dependent on voluntary
contributions, and requires £1000 per annum to main-
tain its work. In addition to the Evangelistic,
Medical Mission, Benevolent, and Temperance work,
it has departments for fathers, mothers, working-
lads, young women, and children — its agencies thus
reaching and elevating whole families. It has been
in operation for over thirty years as an auxiliary
to the churches of all denomincations, with results
which prove the soundness of its principles of mission
work, and the great value of organization.
Schemes of operation. — Sabbath Evening Sermons,
St. Andrew's Hall; City Hall Saturday Evening
Concerts; Morning Coffee Stands on the Streets;
Band of Hope; Penny Savings Banks; Temperance
Library; Tract Distribution; Female Missionaries on
the " Missing Link " system ; Sea Side Convalescent
