Today, all of the materials on which Mr. Hubbard briefed those first parishioners – in total, more than 430 recorded lectures – remain the very core of the Briefing Course.

When other churches were formed in Copenhagen, Los Angeles and Sydney to minister this advanced and special auditor training, they opened their doors as Saint Hill Organizations for they, too, specialize in conducting the SHSBC for all Scientology parishioners in their part of the world.

Saint Hill Organizations must maintain facilities for parishioners from both local areas and even other countries. Most parishioners who travel to a Saint Hill arrange their schedules so they can devote themselves to an intensive period of training — several months to a year — on the Briefing Course. Thus, Saint Hills have a high concentration of parishioners who devote their full time to religious services.
