In-person Sunday church services have resumed at 10:30 am. Zoom attendance and call-in also available. For information about joining in, please call (215) 277-5889. Leave a message and you will receive a call back with details.
Sunday Worship 10:30 am
On Sundays at Churches of Christ, Scientist around the world, you’ll find a friendly greeting, music, singing, scriptural readings, prayer, and a sermon. The sermon is based on a weekly Christian Science Bible Lesson from our pastor, the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. A democratically elected lay “First Reader” will run the service and read from Science and Health, while a “Second Reader” will read from the Bible. Typically, the service lasts an hour, and Sunday School classes are held at the same time as the service. Wherever you go to church, we hope you’ll introduce yourself to the Readers and your fellow attendees.
As mentioned above, the pastor of this Church is two books: The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. In church services and meetings in Christian Science branch churches throughout the world, democratically elected lay members of the congregation read aloud from the pastor.
Listen live to The Mother Church's Sunday Service at 10 am ET
You may also tune in any time during the rest of the week. The service lasts one hour and an organ prelude and postlude extend 7–10 minutes before and after the service. An audio replay is available within 30-60 minutes after the service ends.
Thanksgiving Service 10:30 am
On Thanksgiving morning, the congregation gathers to hear readings from the Bible and Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy specifically related to giving thanks.
The service is similar to the weekly Sunday service, with the addition of a time for anyone in attendance to give a testimony of gratitude.
All are welcome to attend.
Our Thanksgiving service often includes a solo featuring a Sunday School student and teacher.
