Find out more about Scarborough’s Christian Science Society at open day and talk in April

Visitors are welcome to find out more about Scarborough’s Christian Science Society at an open day and free talk about facing the challenges of life today. Their doors are open on Saturday 27th April.

If you have wondered about the work of Scarborough’s Christian Science Society, then you can take a look around from 10am - 2pm during the open day  on April 27.

Then the talk will follow at 3pm, about ‘A lasting, healing solution to hopelessness’, which visitors are welcome to attend.

Alison Hughes, a practitioner of Christian Science healing a member of the international speakers’ bureau, will present her talk at  the Christian Science Reading Room, at 60 Ramshill Road YO11 2QG. It will focus on how Christian Science can help you to understand universal healing advice which is offered in the Bible.

We hear everywhere of the challenges of today: Civil chaos, mental health issues, climate or pandemic-related social and economic worries and more. Some are asking, ‘Is there a permanent solution?’

As far back as Biblical times and during Jesus’ ministry, practical, transformative prayer brought healing. This lecture will share why it is realistic today to have a trusting expectation of good.

Alison Hughes

Christian and scientific

Sharing examples of healing from her own life and professional practice of Christian Science, Alison will explain why Christian Science is both Christian and scientific, meaning that people can prove its effectiveness for themselves. The beliefs are fully described in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by the founder of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddy.

Alison will also touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, who came to understand, confirm and teach what she felt was original Christian healing. Eddy herself said she was especially inspired by Jesus’ demand, “He that believes on me, the works that I do will he do also; and greater works than these will he do, because I go unto my Father” (found in the Gospel of John 14:12 in the Bible).

For over 150 years, people around the world have worked to follow Christ Jesus in this practice of Christianity and continue to do so today, experiencing healings of physical ills and personal difficulties.

As a Christian Science practitioner, Alison helps people on a daily basis through this scientific approach to prayer. As a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship, she travels from her home base in Liverpool, to give public talks like this to local communities.
