Public talks by members of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship explore these questions and explain Christian Science, to all kinds of audiences. Everyone is welcome.

Centered on the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, these talks describe how relevant the spiritual laws behind Christ Jesus' healing works are to our lives. They explore the life-transforming ideas found in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. The speakers 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 at healing others through the practice of Christian Science.
