Learn more about our church
Our Sunday service is based a weekly Bible Lesson, outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly and studied by students of Christian Science all over the world. This sermon is composed of selections from the bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by the discoverer and founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy. These two books constitute our Pastor.
Our Sunday School provides the opportunity for young people up to the age of twenty to learn more about making Christian Science a practical part of their everyday lives. The teaching is based on the Bible, beginning with the Ten Commandments, the Lord's Prayer, and the Sermon on the Mount and Science and Health
At our Wednesday testimony meetings, passages from the Bible and Science and Health are read, focusing on a variety of subjects. A portion of the meeting is set aside for members of the congregation to share their testimonies of inspiration and healing, gained from their study of Christian Science.
Our Reading Room adjacent to our church is a book store and spiritual resource centre. Here you will find the Bible, Bible reference materials, the writings of Mary Baker Eddy and other Christian Science literature and CDs as well as items for young people. A quiet Room is available for study and prayer. A librarian is always on hand to answer questions and a computer is available to enable you to access a wide range of videos and talks on spirituality and healing.
