In areas where there isn’t a branch church or society, Christian Science informal groups provide a way for students of Christian Science to come together for public worship and mutual support. Informal groups may be started with just one member of The Mother Church. The activities they offer are based on the healing ideas found in the Bible and in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
This web page provides information about informal groups. These groups may include reading the Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lesson together, singing, prayer, testimonies, or discussion as local conditions dictate. Informal groups ensure that Christian Science has a public presence in the community until a branch church or society is able to form. The Mother Church provides a listing of informal groups.
