It provides information on the Church, its founder and members, for the media, parliament and the public.

The District Manager works with the Manager of Christian Science Committees on Publication in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, and with local Committees covering all areas of the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The Christian Science church was founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1879 ‘to commemorate the word and works of our Master (Christ Jesus), which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing’. (Church Manual 17)
