Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, (The Bible – II Chronicles 20: 15, 17).

Every Wednesday at 6.00 pm a Testimony Meeting is held at the Christian Science Church in Canberra.  Each meeting begins with readings selected from the two books designated as the Pastor of Christian Science: The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.  A new topic for the readings is selected each week.

At the conclusion of the short readings the congregation is invited to share thoughts on this topic and relate how they have used the principles of Christian Science to solve life’s problems and bring physical healing.

If you are in Canberra on any Wednesday please join us. Everyone is welcome.

This recording represents the readings on the topic:  Fear Not.

Studies have found those with gratitude are more likely to have a high grade point average.”

Children who are encouraged to know their spiritual identity find a valuable poise reflected in both academic and secular activities.  In general, students are found to be more successful, resilient and happy.

There have also been studies by psychologists and sociologists on gratitude.  According to the Christian Science Monitor, if you’re grateful, you are more likely to be happy.

It stated that grateful people are more helpful, more satisfied with life and have better friendships.  It said studies have found those with gratitude are more likely to have a higher grade point average.  They tend to be healthier both physically and mentally.

At the Christian Science Sunday School, gratitude for good is fostered along with deep reflection on the nature of God as a law of eternal truth, as well as an all-encompassing divine love.

The Sunday School operates around small discussion groups with students, up to the age of 20, who are encouraged to discover and demonstrate more of their spiritual self as described in the Bible.

Choosing a religious educational context for children is important. It can encourage the life of the child and the community. To find out more about the Christians Science Sunday School in Canberra visit the Christian Science Canberra website.
