Located in the heart of Boston, The Mother Church is the centerpiece of the Christian Science Plaza—one of Boston’s largest privately-owned spaces accessible to the public.
All are welcome to attend our Sunday church services and Wednesday testimony meetings, and to bring children and teens to our Sunday School. We provide child care at all of our services. Several times a year, we offer free, topical public lectures on Christian Science. Learn more about Christian Science on this website, or feel free to visit our nearby public Reading Room.
The Plaza is also home to the How Do You See the World? experience located in the Christian Science Publishing House, and to The Mary Baker Eddy Library.
Construction is currently taking place on the Christian Science Plaza. Check the latest Plaza and building access information.
