We are a Christian Science church in central London, part of a world-wide church movement based upon the teachings of Christ Jesus. The spiritual laws which are integral to Christian Science were discovered by Mary Baker Eddy over a hundred years ago. They explain how Jesus was able to heal and how these laws can be a practical part of our lives today. Spiritual healing lies at the heart of everything we do as a church.

Eleventh Church, London was formed in 1922, its purpose being “to spread the truth of the healing Christ as revealed to this age by Mary Baker Eddy.”

The first service was held in Oxford Street and then the church grew and opened a Sunday School and a Reading Room. With increasing numbers the Church found a more permanent site at 1 Nutford Place.

The Church was purpose-built and services began in the Sunday School part of the building in 1925. All costs were met and building work continued and was completed in 1927. The dedication service took place on 1 January 1928.

The Church has moved again, this time to King’s Cross where God has led us. Services in our new building began on Sunday, January third, 2016.

This church, like the original Christian Science church called The Mother Church,

“is designed to be built on the Rock, Christ; even the understanding and demonstration of divine Truth, Life, and Love, healing and saving the world from sin and death; thus to reflect in some degree the Church Universal and Triumphant.”
