Our work is to ensure that accurate information about Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, and Christian Scientists, is published by the print and broadcast media, on social media, as well as in academic journals, religious publications, books, etc.
The Committee serves as a media and information resource and legislative division of the Christian Science Church. For publishing please refer to the Christian Science Publishing Society HERE.
The Committee works with legislative bodies to protect the rights of individuals to rely on a non-medical, prayer-based approach to health and healing centred on the Bible and the life and teachings of Christ Jesus, as explained in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy and her other writings.
The Committee responds to legislative and regulatory developments accordingly.
The first Committee on Publication for the Christian Science Church was established in 1898 in Boston, USA, to deal with malicious attacks and misrepresentations on the Church, its founder, members and beliefs.
The first Committee on Publication for London, Frederick Dixon, was appointed in 1907. Two years later he took on the additional responsibility of District Manager for ‘Great Britain and Ireland’, a post he held until until mid-1914, when Scotsman Charles Tennant took over.
The current District Manager is Robin Harragin Hussey, who took office in October, 2016.
