Reading Room

Our Reading Room is also at 84 Kimbolton Road, Bedford. It's open on Wednesdays from 7 to 7:50 p.m., on Fridays from 2 to 4 p.m. and on the first and third Saturday mornings of each month from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon. (For additional opening hours [some Mondays], phone 01234 352914 to check opening times.) You can read, borrow or buy the Bible, the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, other works by Mary Baker Eddy and various Christian Science periodicals.

Many of these publications can be read on-line:

Bible The King James Version of the Bible.
Science & Health The Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy

Bible Lessons Selections from the Bible and from Science and Health are read at Christian Science churches each Sunday, and are studied during the previous week. They can be read in our Reading Room, either on-line or from the books. The Golden Text and Responsive Reading for each week can be read on-line from anywhere, and subscriptions are available for one or more weeks' Lessons.

An engaging spiritual resource for teens and young adults. Bible notes, timelines, and translations illuminate each week's Lesson.

Monitor The international daily newspaper, the Christian Science Monitor.
Sentinel The weekly Christian Science Sentinel includes practical articles about how Christian Science has helped and healed.
Journal The monthly Christian Science Journal includes directories of churches and of those who publicly practice Christian Science healing.
Herald The Herald of Christian Science is published in many languages.

There is also now a UK Online Reading Room from which you can buy these and other books, and some periodicals.
