Effective prayer is healing prayer. Each service supports our understanding of this scientific, healing prayer on consciousness, health and daily life. If you'd like to know more about our Lay-directed Sunday Services you can see the Service Order here.
BIBLE STUDY LESSON
A daily resource for consciousness-changing, scientific prayer, leading to healing. Each lesson subject is built around a key Bible text, or "Golden Text", which defines the objectives of the lesson studied throughout the week and read as the sermon on Sunday.This week's profound subject is Ancient and Modern Necromancy alias Mesmerism and Hypnotism Denounced. - still relevant in meeting today's community needs. The Golden Text is from Psalms 60:12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies. (KJV)
You can find out more about the Bible Lessons here or visit our Reading Room and learn more about these self-study lessons in The Christian Science Quarterly.
WHAT ARE TESTIMONY MEETINGS?
These meetings are a time for sharing inspiration and gratitude for healing and spiritual growth. With appropriate selections from The Bible and Science and Health each week's theme focuses on community and world issues needing our prayer. This week's topic brings us back to basics: Faith That Heals.
On the second Wednesday of each month a teleconference call-in offers anyone who can't get to the meeting a chance to participate. Locations and dial-in numbers.
TESTIMONY MEETING READINGS
Thought-challenging texts to guide our prayers as we seek more effective, healing solutions to community and world problems. These readings are usually available 24 hours after the meeting. The latest readings give comfort and inspiration: Faith That Heals.
Each year we review our God-given blessings and share the experiences at a special Thanksgiving Meeting in November. Similar to our Sunday Service, it lasts about an hour and includes Readings from the Bible and Science and Health followed by a "gratitude" session - as well as some appropriately joyful hymns.
EFFECTIVE PRAYER: SPIRITUALITY AND HEALTH TODAY
Our gift to our community: talks on meeting daily challenges through Bible-based healing prayer. These are annual talks by international speakers who introduce and explain - with examples - the effects of God-centred living on consciousness and health.
