Theres nothing more important than feeling loved, valued and needed getting a clearer sense of our unbreakable connection to God, infinite Love. This is what gives us a sense of worth and purpose.

Ill talk about what our purpose is, what it is that makes us absolutely essential, and how getting a clearer understanding of who we all really are has such an impact on our lives and on the lives of others.

I'll talk about how Jesus brought healing to so many people, and how the founder of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddys desperate need for healing led to her discovery of Christian Science.

And Ill give examples of how Christian Science is bringing folks out of dark times and difficult situations today.

We're Back!

You're invited to be part of our congregation at 42 School Street, as we have returned to our church edifice. Or join our service with a Zoom connection (audio only). Contact the Clerk using the email icon below for the access code.

Our Sunday School helps children become familiar with the Bible, and how they can turn to God for help and healing. We are accepting new students.

As Connecticut has not yet fully lifted its mask protocols, we're asking that everyone wear a mask during the services.


Sunday Services

If you’re looking for a new church home or visiting our area, we want you to feel comfortable and welcome at our service. Our service consists primarily of readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.

The musical prelude you’ll hear as you enter sets the tone for the exciting new ideas that will be read, along with familiar Bible stories in that week’s Lesson/Sermon.

We have a “come as you are” dress code with an emphasis on brotherhood and love, not formality.


Sunday School

In our Sunday School, which meets at the same time as the church service, students up to the age of 20, learn from the lives and examples of Bible characters. The Ten Commandments, Beatitudes, and the Sermon on the Mount, which promote brotherly love, are also taught.

Young people are invited to explore how God can guide their decisions and provide answers to problems they may be facing.

Student directed topics such as bullying, relationship problems, career paths and physical healing are regularly addressed.


Wednesday Evening Services

Readings addressing local concerns as well as world issues make up half of the Wednesday Testimony meeting. Then, members of the congregation are invited to share testimonies of healings through prayer, of challenges of all kinds including health, financial, and relationships.


Children’s Room

Loving care in our children’s room is provided for infants and children not yet ready for Sunday School.

Our Children’s Room is open during both our Sunday morning services and Wednesday evening meetings.

 

Reading Room

Our Reading Room is open to everyone. You can read, borrow or purchase Bibles, Bible resources and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, which makes the Bible come alive.

Come in to read or buy copies of our weekly and monthly magazines, or use our computer, to find people’s accounts of healing of minor to major injuries, mending of broken bones, protection from contagious disease, healing trauma, and harmonizing of family and work relationships.

If you’re curious about Christian Science, the Christian Science Sentinel might be a good place to start to see how others have gotten through dark times. Talk with the friendly Reading Room Attendant, or spend some quiet time reading to regain your spiritual bearings in the middle of your busy day. Why not set aside some time this week for “the things of the Spirit” and come see for yourself!
