Our Mission


This Christian Science Church is one of the worldwide branches of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1879. The Christian Science Church is “…designed to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing.” (Manual of The Mother Church by Mrs. Eddy.
P. 17.)

Sunday School


Our Sunday School is provided for students up to the age of 20. Instruction, which includes the teachings and healings of Christ Jesus, is from the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy. Students are taught of God’s love for them and of the relevance of Jesus’ teachings to their lives.

Wednesday evening testimony meeting is at 7:30 PM.

How far can lovingkindness take us?

Lovingkindness is increasingly felt as a common bond between those with faith in a supreme being and those without.  It prompts compassion to strangers, an offer to mow a neighbour’s lawn, an arrangement to take a colleague to the airport.  If lovingkindness were underpinned by Love as divine law, and this talk gives a compelling case that it is, then lovingkindness becomes a capacity that continues in times of stress. It can resolve conflict and even heal physical ailments.  


This talk explores the phenomenon that we progressively see: humanity becoming healthier, happier, and steadier the more we understand spiritual identity.  Through healing examples the case is put that infinite Love constitutes this enduring spiritual identity.
