We have been serving the community in Exeter for over a hundred years and warmly welcome you to our services. We promise not to pressure or try to convert you. We have a Sunday School for young people up to the age of 20 and a crèche for very young children.Our church is run by its members for the benefit of the community and the world. Our Sunday Service at 11am is very simple in format, easy to follow and inclusive.
We do not have ministers or priests. Services are centred on the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy and these publications serve as our pastor. The services are conducted by two people elected from the church membership who read a weekly Bible lesson. Music plays a large part in our service with three hymns and a solo.
Wednesday Evening Meetings
We hold a more informal meeting each Wednesday evening at 6.30pm to which you will be very welcome. It usually lasts about an hour and includes an opportunity for members of the congregation to share their healings and inspiration (don’t worry you are not under any pressure to speak).
The meeting starts with a hymn, is followed by readings from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook read by the Reader, a short period of silent prayer and the Lord’s Prayer, another hymn and then, a period for testimonies from anyone who wishes to speak. The meeting closes with a hymn.
