Listen live and up to 24 hours afterward
Every Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. Eastern time, join the online congregation of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, MA, USA.
You'll hear hymns and readings specially compiled for the day, as well as testimonies submitted by listeners. Readings are from the Christian Science pastor, the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. There is an organ prelude and postlude, plus an online church lobby, open for 15 minutes after the meeting.
The meeting is conducted by the First Reader, who selects the readings and hymns. Some testimonies of healing and other comments about Christian Science submitted by listeners are read live by testimony readers. Bios are available.
Testimonies, music, reading citations, and replays
Please feel free to submit testimonies (at the bottom of this page) in advance of the meeting. Guidelines are available. By Wednesday morning, music and hymns for the meeting will be posted. Citations for the readings, approved submissions, and an audio replay will all be available less than a half hour after the meeting ends. All of these will remain posted for 24 hours after the meeting ends, until 3:00 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday.
