Welcome to our Church
We are part of the Christian Science community in Warwickshire.
Christian Science was discovered by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866, and the Church of Christ, Scientist was founded in 1879 "To organize a church designed to commemorate the words and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing". From its beginnings in America it has spread throughout the world. Our church, the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Stratford-upon-Avon is one of the many branches of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. This particular branch has been in existence since 1949 and is based in one of Stratford's many old buildings, parts of which date back to 1601.
We hold services every Sunday and Wednesday, and also have a Sunday School for young people up to the age of twenty. Our Reading Room is a quiet place to study and pray, and also sells Christian Science publications.
On this website you will find all the information you need about our services and facilities. You will also find explanations of what Christian Science teaches and how this can help and heal in daily life.
