The Reading Room

We have a Reading Room on the ground floor of the church. It’s a quiet place for you to read, pray and study the Bible and Christian Science literature. You can also purchase the Bible, Christian Science books, magazines and other items there. A Reading Room Librarian is available to give you a tour of the Reading Room and help you with purchases or assist you in finding what you need to study and research.

There is a computer available for exploring online aids to the study of Christian Science, including webcasts of talks, workshops, events and podcasts, The Librarian and assistants will be happy to show you how to use the different sites.

The Christian Science Bible Lesson Sermon is available to read and study in the Reading Room. Christian Scientists study a new Bible Lesson Sermon each week. Citations from the Bible together with correlative passages from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science make up the lesson. This sermon is then read in the Sunday service by two readers (elected members of the congregation).

You may also read the periodicals; The Christian Science JournalChristian Science Sentinel, and the Herald of Christian Science (which is published as print version in four languages and as an online magazine in ten others), or choose to read them online from the computer.

The Christian Science Monitor, an international and award winning daily newspaper, may be read on line. The weekly edition is also available in print format for sale in the Reading Room. 

See the Monitor’s website here.
