Who we are

Christian Science has had a presence in Bedford for over a century. Our church, First Church of Christ, Scientist, Bedford is a branch church of The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts, also known as "The Mother Church". This church was founded by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, to "reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing" (Church Manual p.17). Healing is an important aspect of Christian Science, and you can find out more at The First Church of Christ, Scientist's web site.

Everyone is welcome at our services and to use our Reading Room.
