“May this dear little church
nestled so near my heart and
native hills be steadfast in
Christ, always abounding in
love and good works,
having unfaltering faith
in the prophecies, promises
and proofs of Holy Writ.”
The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany 155:4-7
The Concord church was a gift from Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, to the Concord community, near to her birthplace in Bow, New Hampshire.
Because of the generous gifts from Mrs.Eddy herself and many Christian Scientists throughout the United States, when it was dedicated in 1904, it was debt free.
The church is located at the corner of North State Street and School Street. The address for mail is 33 School Street, Concord, NH 03301. To leave a message at the clerk’s office call 603-224-0818.

The Wednesday evening meetings begin with a hymn and readings from The Bible and Science and Health on an inspiring and often timely issue or need in the community or the world.

Two new recent pages:
Prior to the construction period, we established a prayer calendar in which church members chose a day each month, prayed, and stood watch to support the work. The construction was completed with no disruptions, no rain, safely, on time, and within budget, even less than the estimated amount.
We join with St. John in proclaiming, “Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever.” (Rev. 7:12)

However, they extend beyond the right sides on computers with 1024 x 768 resolution. Since 85% of computers in use in 2012 have higher resolution than the 1024 width, it was decided to keep the higher resolution for these webpages. Also the pale peach sidebars may appear orange on some monitors.]
