Online services and events

The Mother Church is located near the heart of Boston on the beautiful Christian Science Plaza. The Plaza hosts a variety of public events such as organ concerts and talks on Christian Science, and is home to The Mary Baker Eddy Library and its world-famous Mapparium. We hope you'll visit often.

You’re also invited to attend Sunday church services and Wednesday testimony meetings, and bring your children and teens to the Sunday School.  Childcare is provided at all of our church services.

We'd also love for you to visit the nearby public Reading Room, and tour the original Romanesque church (1894) and the Byzantine-Renaissance extension (1906), which houses one of the world’s largest pipe organs.
