From the December 1891 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The "Order of Church Service," as reprinted over my signature in the October issue of this Journal, was originally indicated by a student, and I consented to it. That there be uniformity among Christian Scientists in their Church services, I submit the following Order of Exercise:
Pastor announces that he will read from the Bible, and from Science And Health.
Lord's Prayer and Spiritual Version repeated alternately.
Pastor commences the first line of the Prayer, and repeats it with the Church; then he responds to it with the version. Next, the Church repeats the second line of the Prayer and Pastor responds, and so on to the end.
Pastor reads Hymn.
Pastor reads Hymn.
