Christian Science in Philadelphia, PA
A Warm Welcome to Our Church
We are here for you and yours, and for the whole world. We invite you to attend services, bring children to Sunday School, visit our Reading Room, and become part of our Church family.
We are a Bible-based, Christian church focused on healing and based on the word and works of Christ Jesus and the teachings of Christian Science. We welcome all seekers.
We are a branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts.
Thus, we are part of the worldwide Christian Science movement founded by Mary Baker Eddy in New England more than a century ago.
A deeply devoted student of the Bible, Mrs. Eddy wrote and published our textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, “to reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing.”
Today, students throughout out the globe rely on Christian Science to grow spiritually, and to protect and heal themselves, their families, and the world.

About Our Church
The sermon consists of citations from the Bible, and our textbook, “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy. They are read by a First Reader and Second Reader, elected annually by our members. The citations can be studied each week in the Christian Science Quarterly.
At our Sunday services you will also be inspired by piano and organ music, a solo, and three hymns sung by the congregation.
With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
About Our Sunday School
In our Sunday School– children up to the age of 20 learn the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Sermon on the Mount, and how to apply their lessons at school and home.
You are welcome to bring children in your family or neighborhood to our Sunday School.
Wednesday Testimony Meeting
Christian Science brings to the body the sunlight of Truth, which invigorates and purifies.
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy
At our Wednesday meetings, readings are customized to the needs of the congregation and the community. You will hear fellow attendees share insights, experiences and testimonies of healings they have had as a result of prayer and the study of Christian Science. Hymns and music are also a part of each service.
You can also borrow or purchase the Christian Science textbook, “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. Both are available in a variety of languages, as are leaflets, periodicals, CD’s and more.
To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings. ~Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker
