Help through Christian Science is not limited to members of The Mother Church. If you live near Boston, or if you're visiting, and are seeking help through Christian Science, see below.
Christian Science practitioners and Christian Science nurses
If you are seeking healing, you can get help from Christian Science practitioners and Christian Science nurses.
- Christian Science practitioners provide encouragement, answers to questions, prayer, and Christian Science treatment. Treatment is based on the Bible and the principles explained in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
- Christian Science nurses help individuals who are relying on Christian Science treatment for healing. This care is based on the same principles as is Christian Science treatment. It doesn’t include medical treatment or therapies, but does include skillful, practical, compassionate assistance with a wide range of physical care needs.
Attend a church service
You are warmly welcome at the Sunday services and Wednesday testimony meetings of The Mother Church. Ask questions of any usher or member. At the services, members join in praying for the whole congregation. Those under 20 are welcome at Sunday School.
Visit a Reading Room
In Boston, you can visit The Mother Church Reading Room. It’s a peaceful and inviting place to be. Everyone is welcome to come in, ask questions, research prayer and healing, or purchase Bibles, Science and Health, other works by Mary Baker Eddy, literature, and music.
If you are in the military, you can find a Christian Science Military Chaplain on some bases. There are also non-military (civilian) chaplains serving at some prisons and other institutions in the United States.
Helping others and volunteering
Members of The Mother Church can serve as an usher, as a teacher in in the Sunday School, or on other committees (prison ministry, lecture, care). Learn more
