Christian Science is an established worldwide denomination and a deeply committed Christian church whose practice rests upon the inspired teachings of Christ Jesus and his disciples. 

First Church of Christ, Scientist, East Rochester, NY is one of the many branches of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts.  Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, founded this church in 1879 for the purpose of organizing a church “designed to commemorate the word and works of our Master [Christ Jesus], which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing” (Church Manual, p.17).


Sunday Service / Sunday School 10:00AM      Wednesday Meeting 7:30PM


Our Sunday services are from 10:00-11:00a.m.  Our Pastor is the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.  Two Readers elected by church members read the weekly Bible Lesson outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly. 
 Wednesday meetings are held 7:30-8:30p.m. and are conducted by our First Reader.  The meeting begins with selected readings from the Bible and Science and Health.  Members of the congregation then share testimonies of healing and inspiration, gained from their study of Christian Science.


Sunday School is held at the same hour as our Sunday services and provides the opportunity for children and young people up to the age of twenty to make Christian Science a practical part of their daily lives.  The teaching is based on the Bible and Science and Health, beginning with the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Sermon on the Mount.  Sunday School continues year round and visiting children are always welcome.

.We provide child care in our nursery for children too young to attend Sunday School or the Wednesday evening meetings.
