How to apply for Mother Church membership

You've decided to become a member—and you've been relying on Christian Science healing for a year or more. What's the next step? Apply!

You can get an application at any Christian Science Reading Room, branch church, or society; from someone who's already a member of The Mother Church; or from a public practitioner listed in The Christian Science Journal or The Herald of Christian Science. Or you can get a form by writing directly to The First Church of Christ, Scientist; Clerk of The Mother Church, A-172; 175 Huntington Avenue; Boston, MA, U.S.A. 02115.

Then review the requirements for membership, fill out the application, and take it to a member of The Mother Church who is willing to approve it for you. This member will interview you about membership, sign the form, and send it to a teacher of Christian Science for a countersignature. Applications received by May 1 or October 1 are acted upon in June or November, respectively.

Why not consider this important step? We welcome your application.
