Welcome to First Church of Christ, Scientist, Orinda!

We are a Christian Science church that meets twice a week to listen, pray, share, and praise. We believe that God is all good, and that man is made in His (Her) likeness.

We are a branch oOur message to youf The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts.   Our Sunday sermons come directly from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the Christian Science textbook, by Mary Baker Eddy. Wednesday evenings we gather as a circle of friends to share our experiences in practicing this healing science.

You are invited to visit or join us as we learn and practice more this infinite theme of God’s goodness and ever-present love.

Each July Fourth for several years, we have been offering cups of cold water to parade watchers in front of our church.  We will be there again this Independence Day.  Here are a few images from past years.
