First Church of Christ, Scientist, Edinburgh
In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in him at all times; ... (Psalms 62:7,8)

This church is one of the worldwide branches of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, USA, which was founded by Mary Baker Eddy on the teachings of Christ Jesus, and is “... designed to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing” (Church Manual, p. 17).

We hold regular public services, and also provide a community reading room that is open for all.
