Public talks by members of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship explore these questions and bring the healing message of Christian Science to all kinds of audiences.

Centered on the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, Christian Science lectures explain the spiritual laws behind Christ Jesus' works of physical and mental healing. They explore life-transforming ideas in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Lectures also show the practicality of these teachings by sharing healings of individual, community, and global problems happening today.

These in-person and online talks are given by a diverse group of Christian Science lecturers that serves as a speakers’ bureau for The First Church of Christ, Scientist. From a variety of countries, backgrounds, ethnic and language groups, all are experienced practitioners of Christian Science healing. Regardless of your current religious affiliation (or no affiliation at all), talks like the ones on this page can help you explore how to experience more of God’s healing power in your life by understanding the spiritual truths taught in the Bible and explained today through Christian Science.
