They are warm, supportive, individual church members and professionals who are ready and able to help you. Search for individuals near you by using The Christian Science Journal's directory.

  • Practitioners can be contacted by phone or email or make office visits; they’ll be happy to answer questions and pray with you. 
  • Christian Science nurses provide help for those under the care of a practitioner and would love to answer questions about their services. 
  • Teachers are practitioners who are authorized to teach a two week course on Christian Science healing — Primary class instruction; they are also a great source for answers and prayerful support.
