Welcome to our Church

The Christian Science Church in Dorking (UK) is one of many worldwide branches of The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, USA.

Christian Science is a Bible-based teaching established by Mary Baker Eddy in 1879 and

“...designed to commemorate the words and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing.”

Mrs Eddy sets out her discovery of the healing truths that Jesus taught and practised in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. This book was first published in 1875 and has since sold over 9 million copies.

What’s our response to the Covid-19 outbreak?

Our first response, as we are sure it must be with all faiths, is to pray regularly and consistently for the welfare of all. We listen in prayer for the wisdom to respond appropriately whatever the circumstance may be. As individuals we are, like most folk, naturally staying alert to the needs of neighbours, maintaining contact by phone with those who can’t get out, making sure they have necessary supplies, and helping wherever we can.

At present, our congregation is complying with public concern, and following government advice to avoid social contact and non-essential travel, by suspending public church services. But of course deep prayer continues - and we post thoughts of encouragement in our Reading Room window for all to read. Please see Our Activities page to find full details of our online services.

The website, christianscience.com, provides a helpful source of ideas to uplift those feeling afraid and powerless. The website gives access to articles from Christian Science publications, sharing spiritual ideas that help to calm fear and panic.


Thought for the day

God is everywhere, and nothing apart from Him is present or has power.
