From the 1920s, the First Church of Christ Scientist, Sydney, operated a well-attended Sunday School. The spacious schoolroom contained a library, lavatories, cloakrooms, and rooms for the teachers and superintendent. One individual recalled attending the school in the mid 1970s. According to their recollection, church members used to drive out to poorer suburbs like Hillsdale where mostly migrant families lived. They would then chauffeur dozens of kids to the Sunday school. After hymns were sung, the children would be taken for bible lessons, with children from different neighbourhoods each occupying separate tables with their own teacher.
