Lectures

Our church regularly presents public talks on Christian Science, exploring a range of topics from a spiritual perspective and introducing audiences to the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy. The speakers are all members of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. The public is warmly welcome to these talks, which generally last about an hour.
