The Reading Room

The Reading Room is open on Fridays from 11:00 to 13:00.        All are welcome. 

There are two main areas. In the reception area, the Librarian is pleased to talk with visitors enquiring about Christian Science. Here there are books, CDs and other items for sale including current Christian Science periodicals and the weekly Christian Science Monitor. There is also a small, free lending library.

There is also a study room or 'quiet room'. The current Bible Lesson-Sermon is available to read. Audio is available through a wireless headset. The book stock includes translations of the Bible, together with authoritative concordances and other study material. There are biographies on Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science. The Christian Science Journal and Sentinel, both current and archived, can also be read. 

A computer provides access to Christian Science websites such as http://www.christianscience.com.  This includes articles and testimonies available on JSH-Online to support people in their prayers. Themes include overcoming fear, finding certainty in uncertain times, family harmony, and economic security. New themes and content are posted regularly as community needs change.
