“Christian Scientists abide by the laws of God and the laws of the land;” … Mary Baker Eddy

In response to the current BC health authority requirement to limit large public gatherings, some branch Churches and Societies are taking steps to offer alternative on line Sunday and Wednesday services, Sunday School, and access to Christian Science publications and resources by appointment.

Please see individual branch Church and Reading Room pages on this website for details and updates.


Upcoming Lecture

This is a lecture full of heart and practical application. Through analogies and healing examples, in ‘Demystifying Spiritual Healing’ we discover where genuine security in our lives really comes from. The knowledge that there is a divine Principle underlying our lives that, when relied on, consistently brings peace and goodness to our lives, has been known and proved for centuries. We see that, by looking to God, Spirit, instead of materiality, the people in the Bible found reliable peace, healing and solutions to their everyday needs. And the discovery of the Science of Christ, by Mary Baker Eddy, shows how we too can experience this same peace, security and healing, in our lives. It brings us to the realization that we can no more run out of the good that we need than we can run out of God’s love for us.
