First Church of Christ Scientist, Wilton, CT
About Our Church
We are a branch of the The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts. We’re located at 531 Danbury Road, also known as Route 7.
The building of our church made front-page news in 1962. The architecture was cutting edge- a church built “in the round”. No wonder people feel embraced at the services!
Visitors often say they feel a renewed sense of peace, love and joy in our church- that it is a spiritual oasis.
Everyone is always lovingly welcomed, and many have experienced healing while attending a service.
Healing is a natural outgrowth of gaining a clearer, deeper understanding of God’s love. And each one of us is precious in God’s eyes.
We have an abiding love of the Bible, and this love for the Old and New Testament forms the foundation of our services.
Every Sunday we gather for one hour. The Sunday Service includes joyful singing of the congregation, instrumental music, and a lovely solo.
The heart of every Christian Science service is the reading of the Bible Lesson Sermon. This lesson is studied each week all over the world. Two readers are elected from the membership, and the pastor is comprised of two books: The Bible, and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.
Mrs. Eddy’s book sheds light on the spiritual meaning of the Bible.
Thousands of sincere seekers of truth have seen the treasures of the Scriptures unlocked by this key, resulting in lives transformed and hope restored. All are welcome.
Young people up to the age of 20 find answers every week in Sunday school, which is held at the same time as the Sunday Service. In Sunday school children gain a clearer understanding of their relationship to God and learn how to pray.
All children are welcome and are taught practical, spiritual tools for handling peer pressure, academic stresses, and questions about identity and worth.
Students study the Bible, including The Ten Commandments, The Beatitudes, The Sermon on the Mount, and The Lord’s Prayer. The weekly Bible Lesson and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures serve as a foundation for lessons that help children feel God’s love, and learn that effective prayer brings results.
Like all activities of this church, Sunday school is not just “for members only.” You may read the Bible Lesson at MyBibleLesson.com
Wednesday Evening Services
Join us at our Wednesday Testimony Meeting. Here’s what a visitor has shared about these meetings:
“It was unique, different every week, addressed up-to-the minute issues. But what really caught my attention were the testimonies. Anyone (children, too!) could informally, in their own words, tell how they prayed about a specific situation- illness, family problems, financial stresses, community issues. And how they got answers! How they had healings!“
Prayer is practical. Some of the benefits are: Healing, Gratitude, A Deeper Sense of Peace, Forgiveness, More Meaningful and Harmonious Relationships, Natural Joy!
Please feel free to come and see for yourself.
We offer a children’s room supervised by an experienced adult.
Here, little ones that are too young for Sunday school enjoy age-appropriate toys and games.
Everyone responds to the peaceful, joyous atmosphere.
You, your family, and friends are invited to join us for an American tradition.
Each year on Thanksgiving morning we hold a unique service at 10AM. A special Thanksgiving Bible Lesson is read, and testimonies of healing and expressions of gratitude are shared. If you’d like a free copy of the Thanksgiving Lesson, please email us.
