About Sunday School

Sunday School is held at the same time as the Sunday Service (10:30am to 11:30am) for pupils any age up to 20.

Each class is taught by experienced Christian Scientists who are members of this church.

The children are taught according to our Church Manual by Mary Baker Eddy, as follows:

Teaching the Children


The Sabbath School children shall be taught the Scriptures, and they shall be instructed according to their understanding or ability to grasp the simpler meanings of the divine Principle that they are taught.

Church Manual p 62

Subject for Lessons

The first lessons of the children should be the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:3-17), the Lord's Prayer (Matt. 6:9-13), and its Spiritual Interpretation by Mary Baker Eddy, Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5:3-12).

The next lessons consist of such questions and answers as are adapted to a juvenile class, and may be found in the Christian Science Quarterly Lessons, read in Church services. The instruction given by the children’s teachers must not deviate from the absolute Christian Science contained in their textbook.
