About Us

First Church of Christ, Scientist, Newcastle

Located in the heart of Newcastle, Australia, we are a branch of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, USA. This Church was founded by Mary Baker Eddy, a deep thinker and lifelong Bible scholar who came to understand God as ever-present Love, loving each of us unconditionally.

She is the author of our textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, which we study together with the Bible.

Our services and meetings are open to everyone.


We have no preacher, so our services are conducted by the church members. The Sunday service includes hymns, a solo and the weekly Bible Lesson Sermon which consists of selections from the Bible and Science and Health.

As well as the Sunday service, we have Wednesday Meetings which include time for sharing testimonies of healing.

Join us to sing hymns and listen to readings that uplift and bring a sense of peace. We are open for everyone.
