First Church of Christ, Scientist, Bedford

Saturday Morning Readers’ Group

These informal sessions, open to anyone, began several years ago as a response to newcomers to our church who knew little of the Bible, and were absolutely new to Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the textbook of Christian Science by Mary Baker Eddy. These two books are our dual Pastor, so getting acquainted with them is really important!

The subjects for reading are chosen by the participants — we've explored the Bible, and all the writings of Mary Baker Eddy; we’ve looked at/read the many biographies of Eddy; and we’ve been exploring the various magazines published by the Christian Science Church. All these contain ideas which have proved to be as practical for healing today as they were in the time of Jesus.

Join us each month as we meet to share insights gained from reading the books we’ve chosen to study. We ask questions, puzzle over the meaning of passages and discuss ideas that have helped us in our study of Christian Science and our practice of Christian healing. We usually meet on the fourth Saturday of the month in the Sunday School of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Bedford, at 84 Kimbolton Road, MK40 2PD. We start around 10:30 a.m. and the sessions last for about two hours, but people feel free to come and go as they’re able. You’ll receive a warm welcome at our next meeting whether you’ve read the pages being studied or not.

All the books and magazines we’ve chosen to study can be read, borrowed or bought in the Christian Science Reading Room here in the church building at 84 Kimbolton Road. You’ll find opening times here. Come in any time and ask to be guided to the Lending Library. You can also read the Bible and Science and Health on line, and can usually borrow them from Public Libraries.

Let these meetings help you on your spiritual journey. People of all faiths and backgrounds study Christian Science and countless thousands have been touched and healed by the ideas in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.

Call and leave a message on 01234 352914 if you need further information, or email mailbox@christian-science-bedford.org.uk — we look forward to meeting you!
