Christian Science
 
Can anyone tell me anything about this organisation? Has anyone had any dealings with them? Does anyone know anyone who is a member or has participated? Any info would be useful. Thanks

I once went out with someone whose auntie was a Christian Scientist and she believed that illness was all in the mind but that may not have been official doctrine.

They used to have a Church or reading rooms on Burnley Road, Accrington next to Accrington Garages the Vauxhall agents. Don't know whether it's still there though.

It is still there next to the Vauxhall garage. The old building was replaced by a smaller more modern one set further back from the road. More or less opposite the end of Alice Street.

Yes it's definately one of those 'trendy religions' amongst the Hollywood A-listers.....Madonna is a follower of it aswell I think.

Tom Cruise and John Travolta are followers of Scientology which is something different as far as I know.

The only thing I know about Christian Scientists is that Nancy Astor, the first woman to take her seat in the House of Commons, was one.

Is there a difference between Christian Science and say Muslim or Jewish Science?

Once went to one of their meetings with a friend who was a 'member'.They believe in communication with dead souls, etc., and had had a scarey experience on a ouija board, and thought they could offer some comfort, however, after the visiting medium had pointed me out stating they had a message from Aunt Mary? "Sorry No" says I "Uncle Fred, cousin Sam, Uncle Tom Cobbler and all ?" After negative answers from myself, decided to give up the ghost so to speak.
