Sunday Services

Everyone is welcome to attend our Sunday church service from 9.30 to 10.30am.

Parking is available in both Ocean Street and Duporth Avenue, in the Big Top parking area and another off-street parking area further NW along Duporth Avenue.

What can I expect at a Christian Science Sunday Service?

Our services start with singing! The inspiring hymns with timeless ideas help to lift our thoughts to feel God’s ever-present Love. We’re pretty good singers 😉

There is a short period for silent prayer where each person quietly communes with God, and then we pray with the Lord’s prayer.

Someone from the church will perform an awesome solo.

Every Sunday, two church members read the Christian Science Bible lesson. Our Lesson consists of readings from Our Pastor – the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Subjects, so relevant today, include: God the Only Cause and Creator; Life; Love; Matter; Is the Universe, including Man, Evolved by Atomic Force?; Soul and Body; Probation After Death. These sermons unearth and elaborate on the spiritual meaning of the Bible in practical, understandable ways.

Our service concludes with singing and prayer.

It’s a comfortable, laid-back environment.  There’s no dress code or prerequisite for attending.

About the Sunday Lesson-Sermon

The Weekly Bible Lesson comprises the Sermon. This Weekly Bible Lesson can be studied in advance. You can find it in the Christian Science Quarterly, which is available either online, or in the Reading Room. There are 26 Bible Lesson subjects covered twice a year with passages from the Bible and Science & Health. Each Bible Lesson is fresh, offering practical healing ideas that anyone can apply.

Wednesday Meetings

Every Wednesday we have a testimony meeting from 6.00 to 7.00pm held in the more relaxed Reading Room space. Someone from the church supplies some short readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures on a topic of current community or world interest. Then, anyone present who feels like sharing a genuine spiritual healing, helpful idea, gratitude for God, or question, then has time to do so. We sing hymns and share in God’s warmth. These meetings are pure awesomeness.  Highly recommended!

You can also listen to the online Wednesday service from The Mother Church here.


Thanksgiving

Each year a special Thanksgiving Service is held towards the end of November. Those attending are keen to give gratitude for blessings received during the year, and especially for healing and growth in their lives. You are most welcome to join us.


Sunday School for young people up to 20 years is held at the same time as the Sunday Service.
